University of Maryland - Global Campus Reviews

79 reviews
I am currently in a graduate program in biotechnology taking courses online. It's my first experience with online schooling and has been positive this far. I work full time but the schedule is flexible in that you can do reading/coursework in your own time as long as you meet deadlines. Classes are facilitated by professors but so far my learning has been mostly self directed (ie I've been responsible for reading material/viewing PowerPoint presentations). However the professors have been good/timely about responding when contacted. All the classes I've taken so far have also had a discussion component. All in all, I feel like I am getting a sufficient amount of instruction and interaction. Graduate programs here I think are best suited for those already in the field they wish to study and want to add to their knowledge to advance in their current career. Also, though it doesn't apply to me, it seems they have good resources for current or former military.

I love the knowledge, encouraging and helpful staff at University of Maryland Global Campus. I look forward to attending Spring classes.....2020 is the year for success!
Started classes in-person at their Europe division. I also took hybrid classes and on-line classes. My favorite is the hybrid, going to class one time a week and working additionally on-line. Was very nervous about failing however, since I did not have to follow an exact curriculum, I was able to overcome this fear. Most of the Professors were very engaging. I am thinking about a Masters Degree in Healthcare, however, my daughter will be starting college in Fall of 2021.
