ABOUT UMDTerps love a challenge. A problem that needs a solution. A barrier that needs breaking down. You are smart, scrappy and a little sassy. You value Diversity, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Stick-to-it-ness.
The University of Maryland is home of the Terps—inspiring, involved and intrepid Terps from across the state and around the globe. We’re one of the nation’s top-ranked public research institutions, with a whopping 90 undergraduate majors. And we have an unbeatable location just outside Washington, D.C.
In the classroom, you will learn from Nobel and Pulitzer prizewinners and other renowned faculty members. Outside of it, you’ll get prime opportunities for research and internships on campus and at agencies including the U.S. Department of State, the National Institutes of Health and the Smithsonian Institution.
