Graduate Curriculum

Four students look at magazine. Good graduate education rests on many foundations: enthusiastic and gifted students, talented and dedicated faculty and staff, emphasis on the individual needs of students, good funding, and up-to-date research equipment. UMBC’s graduate programs in Biological Sciences have these qualities and an excellent nurturing environment as well.

A multifaceted, highly interactive education takes place at UMBC in small courses, seminars, group meetings, and spontaneous discussions in the lab. The success of our efforts in this process is evident. Biological Sciences graduate students can look forward to:

  • Publishing in top-tier journals
  • Presenting their research at regional, national, and international science meetings
  • Continuing their education as postdoctoral students in premier labs

We invite you to explore the information available about UMBC’s graduate programs in Biological Sciences. If our research areas match your interests, please contact us to arrange a visit to the department and the UMBC campus.
