Student-first education

The University of New Haven is a leader in transformative student-first education. Through project-based study, a University-wide professional orientation, internships, and service learning—all grounded in a strong liberal arts core curriculum—hard-working and motivated students graduate with the skills, knowledge, and experience essential to success.

Experienced faculty who care
As leaders and innovators in their fields, our faculty bring both extensive professional experience and academic rigor to the classroom. The sincere interest our faculty and administrators have for our students provides the inspiration and individual recognition students need to realize their full potential. 

Five colleges
The University’s five colleges, each with a distinct area of focus—Arts and Sciences, Business, Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences, Engineering, and Health Sciences—house more than 100 academic programs and offer students an exciting range of paths to explore.

Career development
Career development is integrated throughout your four years, starting with the creation of a Personal Professional Development Plan in your first year. From there we connect you with an alumnus mentor, set up job shadowing opportunities, help you secure key internships, polish your résumé, and help you master the art of the interview. In fact, with our career focus and student-first philosophy, we are proud to share that The Princeton Review recently ranked our Career Services as the 17th best in the country.
