Jump on the fast track to your professional career in pharmacy, law or mechanical engineering with competitive programs at Frostburg State University – saving you time and money!

Our 3 + 3 partnership with University of Maryland Eastern Shore allows you to become a pharmacist in six years. This innovative program allows you to complete your undergraduate and doctoral studies seamlessly to reduce instruction time and costs. As a chemistry major at FSU, your studies will meet the requirements and build your strong academic credentials to gain preferential admission to UMES’ professional degree program after just three years of undergraduate study. And because UMES offers year-round instruction, you can earn a doctorate in three years instead of the traditional four. 

Through FSU’s partnership with the University of Baltimore School of Law you can combine a bachelor’s and juris doctor program in six years instead of the usual seven. Since Frostburg’s program is grounded in a strong liberal arts education and experiential learning, you’ll gain the all-important communication and critical thinking skills sought by law schools, plus the experience to prove your abilities. The Political Science department and Law and Society program offer a wide variety of electives so you can explore your law interest and find your niche in time to start your graduate education off right.

Our collaboration with University of Maryland College Park, allows you to spend four years in Frostburg taking advantage of state-of-the-art lab facilities, small classes and friendly atmosphere, while earning a Mechanical Engineering degree from College Park. You’ll benefit from FSU’s lower tuition for the first two years and then take advantage of UMCP’s advanced engineering courses the final two years through interactive video straight from College Park!

The advantages of our collaborative programs are endless!
