Maryland is fortunate to have 50+ colleges and universities from which to choose  -  colleges that offer every major from accounting to zoology.  In other words, whatever you want to study, you can find it right here at a Maryland college or university. 
 
Preparation is the key to ensuring your dream of going to college is realized.
