In 1895, our founders built an institution to open doors for women and knock barriers down – and we’ve been knocking them down since. As society has evolved, so has Notre Dame of Maryland University.
NDMU offers certificate, undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. programs for women and men in addition to Maryland’s only women’s college. All programs provide a firm foundation in the arts, the sciences, and the deeper question of who you are and what you want to achieve.
Because if you’re going to create a better version of the world, you’ll need to become the best version of yourself. That’s always been our founding principle.
A passion for helping others is in our DNA. Our community shares a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of individuals near and far.
An inclusive community where all voices are welcome, and all perspectives are valued is an integral part of the NDMU experience.
Ours is a campus culture where women and men discover the inspiration, gain the wisdom, and build the confidence to become all that they aspire to be.
Founded on truth and justice, on faith and reason, we continue to press the issues and push for progress — providing a foundational education for all who seek to change their world.
For 125 years, Notre Dame has delivered an opportunity-filled experience for all who seek to better themselves, and in turn, better the world.
