The University of Baltimore was founded in 1925, and in 1975 it became part of the University System of Maryland to offer courses for upper-level and graduate students. In 2005 the university reinstated a curriculum for first- and second-year students. Today the school has roughly an equal number of undergraduate and graduate students. The University of Baltimore's urban campus is located in the Mount Vernon Cultural District of Baltimore, Maryland. Music, theater, museums, dining, and shopping are all nearby. The university's Merrick School of Business is well regarded, and business is by far the most popular undergraduate major. The university has a 20 to 1 student/faculty ratio.
