Innovative academic programs
Few universities offer RIT’s variety of specialized career-oriented programs. RIT’s nine colleges offer more than 80 bachelor’s degree programs that attract scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and computer scientists as well as designers, artists, photographers, and filmmakers. You may also choose from more than 90 different minors to develop personal and professional interests that complement your academic program.
Experience that makes a difference
RIT is a world leader in experiential learning. Every academic program offers some form of experiential education opportunity designed to enrich your learning experience; you’ll apply what you learn in the lab, classroom, or studio to real-world problems, projects, and settings. Experiential education takes many forms, including cooperative education, internships, study abroad, undergraduate research, and industry-sponsored projects. Cooperative education (co-op) is the most extensive of RIT’s experiential education opportunities. Many academic programs require students to complete co-ops, while others make it optional. Altogether, this leads to an average job placement rate of 95% over the past three years!
