University College

Arts * Sciences * Professional Studies


At University College: Arts * Sciences * Professional Studies, our commitment is to educating students for the world.

University College emphasizes professionally accredited and career-oriented programs that prepare future leaders to work effectively in a global environment, regardless of profession.  Our wide array of programs is strongly grounded in the liberal arts, recognizing that professionals in all fields require a multidisciplinary and multicultural perspective to be successful. We also stress experiential and field-based learning through internships, student-directed research, cooperative education and community service that supplement academic instruction, enhance career-related experiences and develop students’ social and moral identities as productive citizens.


The mission of University College is facilitated by its location in northern New Jersey’s Bergen County with proximity and ease of access to New York City. Courses and curricula incorporate the unique commercial, scientific, and cultural resources of the metropolitan area to create a learning laboratory of exceptional diversity and richness. The resources of this vital cosmopolitan area contribute to all aspects of University College activity, yet at the same time the College maintains a suburban campus atmosphere.


University College offers a wide range of undergraduate and masters degree programs in such areas as psychology, criminal justice, education, the natural sciences, nursing, engineering and technology, computer science, media and communication and the humanities. Many of our Schools offer accelerated and combined undergraduate /graduate degree programs as well as special areas of concentration and minors described in the appropriate sections by school.

University College is also home to three doctoral programs – the Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, the Psy.D. in School Psychology, and the D.N.P., Doctorate of Nursing Practice.
