Welcome to The University of Baltimore!
Leaders learn here.
We’ve been educating leaders for nearly 100 years; you know us through our faculty’s outstanding research and teaching; you know us thanks to the hard work and dedication of our alumni, students and staff. You know us because we are The University of Baltimore.
Our 70-plus undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs and certificates are aligned with high-demand careers. Our classes are delivered in flexible formats—day, evening, weekend, online—to fit your life and your schedule.
From its beginnings, the University has granted educational access to a remarkably wide range of students: working adults, first-generation college goers, career-changers, and those who require the flexibility not found in traditional college settings.
- 1925: The University of Baltimore was founded as a private night School of Law and College of Business Administration.
- 1937: A junior college was added.
- 1975: The University became a public institution under the Board of Trustees of State Universities and Colleges, shifting its structure to an upper-division undergraduate, master's-level and professional institution.
- 1988: The University joined the University of Maryland System (now known as the University System of Maryland).
- 2007: The University returned to four-year undergraduate education as part of the state's plan for higher education, in response to the increased demand for accessible, high-quality public education.
