A Premier Education Center for Science and Engineering
Quinnipiac’s engaged and accessible faculty prepare 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.
U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” (2020) places Quinnipiac among the best national universities. We are also recognized in The Princeton Review’s The Best 385 Colleges and Fiske Guide to Colleges 2020.
We combine science; practical, in-depth education; and teamwork skills in nationally recognized programs spread across our curriculum in the College of Arts and Sciences with Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Behavioral Neuroscience; in the School of Health Sciences with Biomedical Science, Microbiology/Immunology, and Health Science Studies; and in the School of Engineering with Civil, Industrial, Mechanical, and Software Engineering (all accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET), plus Computer Science.
We’re on the journey with you to develop your knowledge, skills, and confidence to achieve your goals. The methods of teaching and learning are creative and thorough. In every class, your professor will take a personal interest in you and help you think critically and clearly.
Excellent lab facilities in the sciences and engineering promote students working in small groups under faculty direction and supervision. Field studies and internships are integral parts of all science and engineering programs. Students may also plan to continue on in graduate study in a variety of fields at Quinnipiac: Molecular and Cell Biology, Cyber Security, Social Work, Business, Law, Health Careers, Education, Communications, or Medicine.
Quinnipiac’s Pre-medical Studies program gives you the background to meet the academic entrance requirements of professional schools, including chiropractic, dentistry, medicine, osteopathy, podiatry, and veterinary.
At Quinnipiac, the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine is named for the noted surgeon and world’s most well-known medical illustrator. The School of Medicine is located on the North Haven campus and features a state-of-the-art building and facilities in a spectacular setting.
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.
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 as well as workshops to improve study skills, time management, and research techniques. Tutors are upperclass students who are certified. Internships and clinical work often lead to full-time employment after you earn your degree.
Career advisement in each of the schools bridges your college experiences with your career expectations. During your Quinnipiac years, your academic advisor will help you meet graduation requirements and monitor your progress. Our Integrative Advising Center will cater to the lifespan of students and alumni.
Three settings, one University
Quinnipiac’s Mount Carmel campus has academic, residential, and recreational facilities for all students. The nearby York Hill campus is home to the People’s United Sports Center; Rocky Top, a lodge-like student center; and apartment-style housing for juniors and seniors. Just four miles away, the North Haven campus has classrooms and state-of-the-art labs for graduate and professional courses in Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant, Diagnostic Imaging, Radiologist Assistant, and Education as well as the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine and the School of Law.
You will meet people with backgrounds and interests that hold your attention. You are never “just another student”; you have a personality and identity that deserve respect. Quinnipiac celebrates diversity through organizations such as the Black Student Union, the Asian/Pacific Islander Association, and the Latino Cultural Society.
