And you're 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. You'll meet people with backgrounds and interests that hold your attention as we foster lifelong connections and success. 

Transformative initiatives
We’re on the journey with you to help you develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to achieve your goals.

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 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.
