The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) is an innovative partnership of nine University System of Maryland universities on one campus. Each university offers a selection of their most highly sought academic programs and awards its own degrees. USG, in turn, provides centralized onsite student, academic, and administrative services. This integrated approach allows USG to offer easily accessible pathways to 80 upper-level undergraduate, graduate, professional degree, and certificate programs. USG offers flexible options to attend school full-time or part-time, with evening and weekend classes. Students are able to complete their education in an affordable and timely manner close to home. USG provides outstanding career opportunities for students while providing regional employers with a highly educated, skilled workforce.
In 2016, USG will break ground on a 220,000 square-foot Biomedical Sciences and Engineering Education Facility, scheduled to open in 2019. The facility is designed to meet the economic needs of the region, while expanding offerings in baccalaureate, professional, and advanced degrees in healthcare, biosciences, engineering, and computational science disciplines.
