Academics

We are thinkers and doers. Makers and scholars. Whatever your passion, you will fit right in.

The University of Hartford has an academic profile unlike any other institution. The University’s seven schools and colleges offer a combined 100 undergraduate and 64 graduate degree programs. That’s a breadth of offerings you expect to find only at a large state school, not at a private university with a 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio. UHart’s comprehensive academic offerings provide you with endless educational possibilities; at the same time, the connected campus community ensures that you’ll get personal attention and support to be successful.

Expect a lot from your professors. They'll expect a lot from you.

Faculty are the heart of any university. UHart professors are leaders in their field—as scientists, musicians, entrepreneurs, artists, engineers, health professionals, and more. Because UHart faculty have rich, diverse perspectives, UHart graduates are ready to succeed in a workplace that requires multidisciplinary approaches to address complex issues.

Academic life here isn’t contained by the physical campus. The work we do at UHart changes the world in significant ways: Faculty research and student service-learning positively impact our communities, both locally and beyond our border.

One of the greatest things about teaching at UHart is developing relationships with students. The small class size lets me really get to know my students. This helps me to challenge them within their coursework, but also to help them solidify plans for after graduation.

Sebastian DiMauro '18 receiving diploma

Just ask Sebastian DiMauro, B.S., '18

Less than 48 hours after celebrating the Hartford Hawks baseball team winning its first regular season America East Championship, pitcher Sebastian DiMauro crossed the stage to celebrate graduating magna cum laude with a degree in biochemistry.

This year, he plans to work for a cancer research company, apply to PhD programs in biochemistry and pharmacology (he is already accepted to two), and then return to UHart to take courses and play another baseball season (he has one more year of eligibility).
