At the University of Baltimore, Students Redefine the Idea of Knowledge That Works

The University of Baltimore believes in Knowledge That Works: real-world education in business, public affairs, applied arts and sciences, and law that helps students become do-ers, conceptualizing and realizing their ideal careers. From undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees to bachelor's, post-bachelor's and post-master's certificates, it's all here.

Classes at UB are small, so each student is more than simply a number in a large lecture hall. Professors have hands-on experience in their fields and share the practical insights that enable graduates to hit the ground running in their careers. What's more, students get the kind of personal attention often expected from a private school at only a fraction of the cost, since UB is a public university.

The University of Baltimore offers exciting, progressive educational programs focused on fields that are in high demand and will continue to be so over the next decade: simulation and digital entertainment, real estate and economic development, entrepreneurship and health systems management. Students can also pursue a program in which they'll learn skills that will always be relevant in the working world: English, history, psychology, accounting, marketing and more.

Flexible scheduling enables students to take classes during the day, at night or online, and some programs even offer classes on the weekends and in satellite locations. Plus an array of scholarships, grants, work-study programs and financial aid packages are available. UB works with students - regardless of their financial situation-to make college both a reality and an amazing experience.

UB's diverse population-6,200 strong-includes freshman, transfer, graduate and law students. This rich and challenging learning environment contributes to the success of UB's more than 50,000 graduates.

Speaking of success, both current students and graduates have access to UB's Career and Professional Development Center, which offers support in all things job related-whether it's identifying the ideal career or deciding between job offers. The center's wide range of services and resources includes career counseling, connecting you with paid internships, on-campus recruiting, online job listings, career fairs, programs, workshops and more.

An Environment Like No Other, Where the City Is the Campus

UB students are quite literally in the middle of it all. Some schools might highlight how close their campuses are to a city; at UB, the campus is the city. Students are in the heart of Baltimore's historic UB Midtown neighborhood, steps away from public transportation, shopping and some of the city's best restaurants, cultural offerings and entertainment (not to mention its world champion sports teams!). Baltimore's famed Inner Harbor and an array of eclectic neighborhoods, from Hampden to Canton to Federal Hill, are only a few minutes from campus.

And if exploring everything Charm City has to offer isn't enough, students also can choose from more than 60 active student clubs and organizations, including academic-interest and social organizations, athletic clubs, honor societies and special-interest groups, all supported by UB's Rosenberg Center for Student Involvement.

UB's partnerships with several apartment complexes-all within a short walk of campus-make it both convenient and affordable for students to live where they learn. Nearly 300 UB students live at the Varsity, a new, student-only apartment complex located just a block from campus. Other apartment options near the University include the Fitzgerald at UB Midtown, Sutton Place and the Queen Anne Belvedere. From shared apartments to single-person lofts, it's all available in UB Midtown.
