Utica College is a comprehensive, independent, private institution founded in 1946. We offer many of the advantages of a large university, such as undergraduate and graduate degree options, excellent academic programs and outstanding faculty but with an intimacy and a high degree of personal attention more closely associated with smaller private colleges.
Utica College offers a broad range of opportunities to grow personally and intellectually, helping you to build a strong foundation for success in your professional life. Students at UC often develop strong relationships with faculty and fellow students, forging bonds of friendship and academic affinity that can last a lifetime.
Utica College educates students for rewarding careers, responsible citizenship, enlightened leadership, and fulfilling lives by integrating liberal and professional study, by creating a community of learners with diverse experiences and perspectives, by balancing a commitment to its local heritage with global outreach, by encouraging lifelong learning, and by promoting scholarship in the belief that the discovery and application of knowledge enrich teaching, learning, and society.
