80 students work side-by-side with the best environmental scientists in the world.
The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science provides a unique approach to graduate education. By partnering with University System of Maryland (USM) institutions for classroom-based studies, we are able to provide students with a more intense, laboratory-based research education. Our graduate students do not learn about research solely from textbooks. Instead, they work hand-in-hand with their faculty advisor, learning from the best environmental researchers in the nation.
UMCES graduate students matriculate in several areas of specialization, including:
Ecology, Environmental Chemistry, Environmental
Molecular Biology/Biotechnology, Environmental Science,
Fisheries Science, Oceanography, and Toxicology
