College is all about exploring your interests, sharpening your skills and rethinking how you think. The academic experience you will get at the University of Maryland does all of the above through unique and challenging courses and out-of-class opportunities.

Consistently ranked as one of the top public research institutions in the country, the University of Maryland attracts the brightest students, draws outstanding faculty and invests in modern facilities. In the classroom, our general education program emphasizes rigor, innovation and creative thinking. As you advance in your major, you’ll enter the lab, studio, office and field to get hands-on career experience.

But, we believe that learning extends beyond traditional classrooms, so we make it easy to connect with great internships, research opportunities and study abroad. Our highly respected living and learning programs allow you to share housing and classes with peers who have the same interests, and the President’s Promise guarantees every student the opportunity for a special experience that complements the academic curriculum and offers amazing personal growth.

No matter your path, we’ll prepare you to succeed in your career and as a citizen.
