Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) has opened registration for Winter Session 2013. This condensed semester, running January 2-25, is open to current UMBC students, as well as visiting students from other institutions and incoming new UMBC students.

During winter session, UMBC offers classes in a variety of disciplines ranging from ancient studies and economics to mathematics and psychology. In addition to the many in-person classes offered during the session, several classes are offered fully online and others are available in a hybrid format (online and in-person blend). Interested students can learn more about winter session and classes offered by viewing the winter catalog.

“In addition to the obvious benefits of winter session, such as meeting graduation requirements, this is an opportunity for students to work more closely with UMBC's dedicated faculty and focus on a single subject without the distraction of a full course load,” said Beth Jones, Director, of Summer, Winter & Special Programs. “UMBC is renowned for innovative student experiences, so winter session is a great time for students to see first-hand what everyone is saying about UMBC.”

Financial aid and scholarships are offered to qualified students during winter session. To find out more about the session, including how to apply and register, visit
