The University of Maryland is located just outside of Washington DC. Our Graduate School houses doctoral degree programs in a broad range of STEM fields including: cell & molecular biology, ecology & evolution, neuroscience & cognitive science, computer science, math (basic & applied), physics, public health (all aspects), agriculture (including animal & plant sciences), engineering, psychology (basic & clinical), and social sciences.
