Assurance of Learning: B.A. in Environmental Sustainability and Human Ecology
Mission Statement: The Environmental Sustainability and Human Ecology program focuses on the interrelationships between human beings and their environments. Exposed to a broad interdisciplinary curriculum, students concentrate either on physical/biological environment or on the cultural environment, performing activities such as field, air, and water quality assessments; molecular biological analyses; and artifact studies. We assist the University of Baltimore in its mission to find solutions to real-world problems and future challenges facing urban communities. Our graduates are prepared to work in the Baltimore area, and in communities throughout the world, in laboratory, field, and office settings, for government, private firms, and nonprofit organizations.
