About the MDST Track

UMBC has granted permission for INDS to offer the MDST option to students who have already invested significant time and money pursuing a degree at UMBC but are unable to complete their current path. This usually means students (i) have reached the end of their journey within a traditional major OR (ii) left UMBC having already invested considerable time and resources into earning academic credits, but without any of the benefits of having completed a bachelor’s degree.

Since many pathways could be the best way for students to complete their degrees, the MDST major welcomes students who have been referred to INDS by UMBC’s Office of Academic Advising: to learn more about whether MDST is the right path for you, simply follow this link and click the yellow button “Exploratory?
