2021 Krieger School of Arts & Sciences Master’s Ceremony

The 2021 KSAS Master’s Ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, May 26, at 3 PM EDT. Everyone is invited to participate as graduates from Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 are individually recognized for finishing their programs. This year’s ceremony will be held completely virtually as the University balances health and safety guidance with ongoing developments related to the global pandemic. While a virtual ceremony is not the preferred model, it will allow for the incorporation of new techniques to highlight all the graduates have accomplished.

Thank you to all our graduates who submitted content for graduation.
