The global marketplace is shifting and more and more students are choosing to invest in a graduate education at the University of Hartford. As our graduate programs keep growing, we are making an added investment in our students and their personal and professional goals through the new Hawk Alumni Scholarship. The Hawk Alumni Scholarship provides a scholarship equivalent to a 25 percent tuition discount for all UHart alumni entering select master’s degree programs beginning in the spring 2022 term.

Whether our students choose to continue right after graduation or return to us after some time in the workforce, we want UHart to be a continued destination on their educational journey.


We are very excited to welcome our Hawks back to the University of Hartford to continue their studies at the graduate level. By investing in our incredible alumni, we know they will continue to make a significant impact in the world."

Graduate Studies at UHart—Celebrating Our Successes

Over the past three years, our graduate programs have seen a shift in not only the number of students attending, but in the way in which students are choosing to learn. We offer more than 60 flexible and affordable academic programs, so our students are able to achieve their degrees in ways that fit into their busy lifestyles. With many programs shifting online, there has been a significant growth in our enrollment since 2017. 

“This pedagogical format is ideal for our part-time working professionals who are juggling careers and family responsibilities while trying to earn their graduate degree. We have a caring and welcoming faculty who really separate our online programs from other institutions,” says R.J. McGivney, associate vice president for Graduate and Professional Studies.

Through both online and in-person options, our students are able to connect with faculty who are not only experts in their own field, but who have deeply rooted connections with professionals in business, industry, education, health and wellness, and the arts.
