Your Onward and Upward Await
We're here to work
Bloomsburg University was founded on the belief that opportunity is created by those determined to achieve more. And because our grads make a difference from their first day on the job, employers put a high value on a Bloom degree … and the person who earned it.
Founded in 1839, Bloomsburg was built on the vision that higher education should be available to anyone who is ready to work for a better life. Today that tradition continues, with limitless opportunities for our students across the Commonwealth and beyond.
Bloomsburg University is an inclusive comprehensive public university that prepares students for personal and professional success in an increasingly complex global environment.
