There are lots of ways to learn besides lectures and tests. Enhanced courses incorporate experiential learning into the curriculum.

You can get out into the city and apply what you have covered in your coursework to real-life situations. Take advantage of Baltimore's central location to visit Washington, D.C., New York City or nearby rural areas.

Here are some examples of what you might get to do in an enhanced course:

  • Analyze efficiency on the floor of a Baltimore factory.
  • Spend the day in New York City to observe the way the city works.
  • Develop a marketing plan for actual clients.
  • See Shakespeare at the Folger Library.
  • Program a robot in your coding class.
  • Engage community groups to work for social change.
  • Visit archives and historic sites to conduct original research.
  • Sit in on a U.S. Foreign Relations Senate hearing.
  • Hone your networking skills at a business dinner.
  • Experience an evening at Busboys and Poets in Washington, D.C.

As a Helen P. Denit honors scholar, you earn 3 honors credits for every enhanced course you take. When you register in MyUB, check the course notes to see if a course is enhanced or take a look at the honors courses we offer each semester.
