Located on the eastern edge of the charming suburban town of West Hartford, named by Money magazine (2016) as the 15th “best place to live” in the country, the University of Hartford features a warm, vibrant, and welcoming academic community that includes 1,600 graduate students. The opportunities of the city of Hartford are just down the road, and two of America’s greatest metropolises—New York City and Boston—are both just two hours away.
University of Hartford graduate students pursue advanced degrees in Architecture, Art, Business, Communication, Education, Engineering, Music (Instrumental/Performance/Education), Neuroscience, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Prosthetics and Orthotics, and Psychology.
Each April, the diversity of our programs is on display at the annual Graduate Research and Creativity Symposium. Here students showcase their research projects, case studies, artistic performances, and exhibits to fellow students, faculty, and members of the University’s Board of Regents. It’s an eye-opening experience to see the breadth and depth of original scholarship happening in one place.
At a recent symposium, students presented their work on topics ranging from military crisis communication strategy to the cognitive-enhancing role of probiotics in Alzheimer’s disease to an analysis of the bolted connection of a bamboo composite I-shaped beam subjected to bending.
Our graduate students inspire one another—and often the faculty—with their commitment, dedication, and passion.
Because our programs are so diverse, we provide a rich environment for interdisciplinary study. In fact, few settings within Connecticut provide greater cultural and intellectual resources to prepare for lives of leadership and service.
We invite you to learn more about graduate study at the University of Hartford and meet our outstanding faculty. You will soon discover how dedicated our professors are to their programs and their students.
