UB is green to its core: in academics and education.

UB has an expanding Environmental Sustainability and Human Ecology program within the Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences. The hands-on program mixes classroom learning with field study and combines science, sociology and policy to provide the integrated knowledge necessary in an interdisciplinary, environmentally focused field.

As a student in the program, you can:

  • learn about the interrelationship of environmental issues around the globe
  • study the impacts of urban development on ecosystems in Baltimore
  • participate in the Jones Falls Project, which examines the Jones Falls, a historic urban waterway that flows right by the University of Baltimore campus. 

At the graduate level, students can develop a focus on sustainability through the The College of Public Affairs' graduate and doctoral programs in Public Administration.

UB Green allows students, regardless of major, to get involved in community and campus environmental issues. Involvement is the key to applied learning and a great complement to academic and professional success. It also provides opportunities to meet experts, people and organizations that are making things happen. Academics, experience and networking are keys to launching your post-graduation career.
