Student & Graduate Reviews

3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is very flexible and has a broad overview of technology entrepreneurship. It's one of the best schools on entrepreneurship in the nation. Although it is the first year they offer this program, they are backed with extensive background in technology and entrepreneurship. The campus is only 7 miles away from the country's capital and is in a state where there are number of start ups and with alumni with strong presence in the industry.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

The James A. Clark School of Engineering's Masters of Engineering in Reliability is the top program in the country. It's basis in Mechanical Engineering and Physics of Failure is right in line with industry methods and practices. I'm very excited to be a part of this highly-sought program.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The teachers are great. Very supportive, knowledgeable, and well-researched. The other students are from diverse backgrounds and bring a myriad of relevant experiences to the classroom. The cons include not enough graduate jobs for master's students and the cost of living is rather high.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The courses have been incredibly helpful and relevant to my career as a high school English teacher. There have been some issues with the technological aspects--I know many students in my classes who had trouble accessing the education portal where teachers can post grades and assignments--but these issues were resolved relatively quickly. The graduate school sends regular emails about social and health-related opportunities for graduate students. While I have yet to take advantage of most of those, it is nice to see the school care about the students' wellbeing.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel I will be very prepared in my field when I graduate. I do not think there is any support for graduate students, I believe we are made to fend for ourselves when it comes to financial aid and scholarships.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Maryland really has everything I need. The best thing about the school is that it really gives graduate students opportunities to expand their networks and work in the field they want to work in. I always receive emails from the University of Maryland providing internships surrounding my interests. The con about the University of Maryland is that the surround neighborhoods aren't the best of neighborhoods. Their seems to be a lot of crime outside of the school. However, the University of Maryland does a great job of containing crime and keeping crime off campus.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Maryland's journalism graduate program is a competitive and very successful program. The cohort is amazing and a tight-knit group. The professors are successful journalists that teach their experiences in the media world. Also, University of Maryland is near Washington, D.C., which is helpful, especially for journalists interested in politics.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Maryland MBA program is an extremely valuable experience. The alumni and students are extremely supportive and foster relationships that will last a lifetime.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

The architecture program is a great program and I learned a lot from the faculty. The downside is the that it takes a tremendous amount of work and dedication to complete the degree.
