The University of Baltimore (UB) was established in 1925 as a private institution. It became a state institution in 1975, and today is part of the University System of Maryland.
UB offers online learning via its online campus. The faculty of the University have built on their extensive online instructional experience and now offer several online alternatives to fit your needs.
Online study offers busy professionals with work, family, and a host of other commitments an opportunity for educational advancement on their own schedule and at their own pace. You can study, participate in class discussions, and submit assignments day or night, weekday or weekend, at your convenience.
Instead of traveling to a fixed location – campus or learning center – you can access classes from home, work, or anywhere you have an internet connection. You won’t have to battle traffic and parking to get to class on time and then race home afterwards to meet other obligations. In addition, you will benefit from learning through the same current technologies you encounter in the workplace. Most important, you have a “level playing field” that gives every online student an equal opportunity to participate and receive individualized attention from professors.
UBOnline courses are highly structured and require frequent interactions with the instructor and with other students enrolled in the course. In actual fact, as an online student, you may get to know your instructors and classmates better than the classroom student. A growing body of evidence points to the conclusion that, depending on your learning style, you may learn more in the active learning environment of online classes than in the frequently passive environment of a lecture hall or classroom.
Online education is cost-effective. Though tuition may be marginally higher than campus tuition, the gains in personal and work time, depending on your circumstances, may more than offset this difference.
UBOnline programs combine all these advantages with fully accredited programs that employers recognize and respect.
