The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UMBC welcomes your interest in our graduate programs. Our website outlines various aspects of our programs and community and, in particular, provides information on the wide variety of research problems currently being investigated in our department. There is also a wealth of information on activities available to you at our University, and in the very vibrant Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.

Here at UMBC we believe we can offer you the opportunity to tailor a program that meets your individual career objectives. Our department is large enough to provide students with excellent training and research facilities and small enough to foster close relationships with faculty who have distinguished themselves as leaders in their particular research areas.

If our graduate program matches your interests, please call and arrange a visit to the department and the UMBC campus. We all wish you success in your pursuit of graduate education.

If you have questions regarding the Graduate Program, please call:
