Online Masters programs Maryland

Maryland, constituent state of the United States of America. One of the original 13 states, it lies at the center of the Eastern Seaboard, amid the great commercial and population complex that stretches from Maine to Virginia. Its small size belies the great diversity of its landscapes and of the ways of life that they foster, from the low-lying and water-oriented Eastern Shore and Chesapeake Bay area, through the metropolitan hurly-burly of Baltimore, its largest city, to the forested Appalachian foothills and mountains of its western reaches. Maryland was named in honor of Henrietta Maria, the wife of King Charles I, by a grateful Cecilius (Cecil) Calvert, 2nd Baron Baltimore, who was granted a charter for the land in 1632. Annapolis, the state capital, lies on the Chesapeake Bay, roughly equidistant from Baltimore (north) and Washington, D.C. (west).

Education in Maryland

Crowning the state’s system of higher education is the University of Maryland, with its main campus in College Park and branches located in Baltimore, Catonsville, and Princess Anne. The university had its origins in the College of Medicine of Maryland (opened 1807) and Maryland Agricultural College (1856). The several graduate and undergraduate schools of the University of Maryland were consolidated in 1920, and in enrollment, it has become one of the country’s largest universities. In 1988 the University System of Maryland was created by combining the various state-supported campuses, including that at College Park, under an overarching administrative entity.

Maryland has several private institutions of higher learning. The most prominent of these are Johns Hopkins University (founded 1876), with several campuses, a world-renowned medical school, and the Peabody Institute, a music school; St. John’s College (1784) in Annapolis, noted for its emphasis on the great books of the Western world; Goucher College (1885) in Towson; and the Maryland Institute College of Art (1826), in Baltimore. In addition, the United States Naval Academy (1845) is at Annapolis. In this article, we will primarily discuss Maryland’s online masters’ programs.
