The University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) offers a world-class Ph.D. program in Chemistry.

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Department

There are 19 Faculty directing state-of-the-art research, in collaboration with 50 graduate students and 15 postdoctoral fellows and research scientists. We are large enough to have cutting-edge internationally recognized research programs as well as outstanding facilities, yet we are sufficiently small so that faculty and students know each other well.

Extensive infrastructure is available for innovative graduate student research, which includes state-of-art NMR, mass spectrometry, optical and electron imaging, as well as computational facilities. Our Faculty, together with affiliated programs, such as the Meyerhoff Graduate Program and the Chemistry -Biochemistry Interface Program, assure outstanding scientific and professional training for our students. We have established collaborations with several academic and government institutions, including UMB Medical and Pharmacy Schools, NIH, NIST, and ARL, that provide further opportunities to expand students’ expertise.
