• 1920: A look back at the Graduate School 100 Years Ago

      Wink, Tara (2020-10-16)
      In 1920 the University of Maryland Graduate School was only a two-year-old institution (the school was established during the 1918-1919 academic year). The Graduate School was founded at the Maryland State College of Agriculture in College Park, which merged with the University of Maryland (Baltimore) in 1920 forming two campuses under the UM name. The Graduate School oversaw all students taking graduate coursework at the University of Maryland and remained at College Park after the merger in 1920. The post describes the expectations of students for the graduate school as well as the costs associated with the school.
