Program Overview

Welcome to the Biological Sciences Program offered by the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) located in Rockville, Maryland.  While staying local students can streamline their transfer from a community college or a four-year institution to UMD.  Our two-year transfer program focuses on physiology and neurobiology providing a solid foundation for medical, dental and pharmacy school or an allied health profession.   

If you are dedicated to studying life sciences and prepared for rigorous coursework, then Biological Sciences is for you. This program is suitable for students preparing for a health professions career, teaching or research. Students graduating from our program are awarded the same UMD B.S. degree, as students who attend main campus (College Park).  For more information about our program or campus come check out a future Open House.




At Shady Grove, the small class size fosters participation and contribution from the diverse student body, which enhances the overall learning experience.
