Why the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Hartford?

What makes us different?

At the University of Hartford classes are small. Faculty and students form strong relationships. Your professors are going to know your name. They‘ll find out what's important to you and what your goals are. They’re going to push you further than you've been pushed before. And along the way, they‘ll help you to find the strength that's inside of you.

What happens when you get here?

First-Year Seminar

Your first year is critically important to establishing your path to success. All incoming first-year students take First-Year Seminars developed around particular topics. In small groups, you‘ll improve your writing and presentation skills while learning to adjust to the academic expectations of college. With 20 areas of study to choose from, you are sure to find a topic that interests you.


In your very first semester, you will meet with your advisor once a week. This will help you get to know the University better, explore career options, and understand degree requirements.

Career Preparation

You can take a career preparation course as early as sophomore year to identify pathways for career choices, help with job search strategies, master cover letter and resume writing, and learn networking and interviewing skills. Throughout your years here, you will meet successful alumni who return to campus in order to share their career wisdom and advice with you.
