A place for constant beginnings
What can you expect from Quinnipiac University? An accessible and engaged faculty that prepares students for the ever-changing 21st-century workplace and a world where cultural diversity, lifelong learning, and civic involvement are valued. We provide an educational experience that combines the closeness of a small college with the opportunities of a university—and all on a campus rated among the most beautiful in New England.
U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” (2020) places Quinnipiac among the best national universities in the country. We are also recognized in The Princeton Review’s The Best 385 Colleges and Fiske Guide to Colleges 2020.
And you are never just another face in the crowd. Our alumni remember the individual attention they received from faculty. Our professors are, of course, experts, researchers, and authors, but their time is spent mostly with their students, in and out of class. We are fostering lifelong connections and success.
We’re on the journey with you to develop your knowledge, skills, and confidence to achieve your goals. In every class, your professors will encourage you to think critically and develop a sense of informed independence. Many courses feature real-world experiences as essential parts of their studies. Quinnipiac cosponsors internships at more than 1,000 locations, including health care centers, network television stations, Forbes 500 businesses, and government offices.
The College of Arts and Sciences provides most of the core curriculum courses that give you a solid and broad foundation for your career and future plans as well as in-depth majors such as Biology, Criminal Justice, Political Science, Psychology, and more.
The School of Business Center for Entrepreneurship, the Terry Goodwin Trading Room, an active App Lab, and collaborative classrooms enhance learning along with internships and international experiences.
The School of Engineering students gain hands-on learning in a wide range of workshops for Civil, Industrial, Mechanical, and Software Engineering, plus Computer Science.
The School of Communications helps students “tell stories” in all majors using ultra-high-definition Sony FS5 4k and 5k Super 35 Red Dragon cameras, multimedia and digital design labs, a news innovation center, and all the latest software.
The Schools of Health Sciences and Nursing have graduated health professionals in nearly every field who work in hospitals, clinics, corporations, and organizations across the country.
The School of Education offers students interested in teaching a five-year BA/Master of Arts in Teaching degree program. The innovative program combines education courses with a liberal arts or science major and provides experience in classroom teaching.
Advising now and for the future
College-level academics can be demanding, but Quinnipiac is a learning community. The Learning Commons provides full tutoring assistance in academic subjects plus workshops to improve study skills, time management, and research techniques.
What happens after your years at Quinnipiac? Our Integrative Advising Center caters to the lifespan of students and alumni. Career advisement in each of the schools is a potent resource that bridges your college experiences with your career expectations. During your Quinnipiac years, your academic advisor will help you select courses to meet graduation requirements and monitor your progress. Our programs and staff focus on job-seeking skills and resources you’ll need to begin and continue your career.
It is an education that works. In a survey of a recent Quinnipiac class taken six months after graduation, 97% of respondents were either employed or in graduate school full-time.
