Will I ever have to physically come to the UMBC campus?

No. However, all graduate students are encouraged to attend the weekly seminars that occur on Wednesdays from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. The seminars present information that is usable by all of the graduate courses and often have some national or international experts in the field of EMS as guest speakers. Students are also able to “attend” the live session and interact remotely via Blackboard. All the seminars are recorded for students to view at a later time if they are unable to attend during the seminar time.
We also encourage all our graduate students to participate in UMBC’s Graduate Commencement in December and May.
