Astronomy Graduate Program

The University of Maryland at College Park offers a Ph.D. in Astronomy. It is common that students will get an M.S. degree in the course of their Ph.D. studies, but only applications for the Ph.D. program will be accepted.

Questions about our graduate program should be directed to the chair of the Graduate Entrance Committee, Dr. Derek Richardson.
For any other inquries about the graduate program, contact Olivia Dent.
Questions about general graduate student life should be directed to current graduate student Joe DeMartini.
