St Mary’s College of Maryland Top Questions

What are the academics like at your school?


As a freshman on the humanities side of things, I didn't have a class larger than 30 students. All of my professors knew my name, and several of them welcomed us to call them by their first name. Your absence from class will be noticed. We don't have a reptutation for cut-throat academic competition, and that's how most students like it. A St. Mary's education is geared more towards exploration and development, but there are some unique opportunities for students interested in History, with Historic St. Mary's City right next door. Biology is a popular major for incoming freshman, and our location on the river lends an interesting environment for that.
