Located in the heart of Central New York, Utica College is a comprehensive, independent, private institution founded in 1946 by Syracuse University. We pride ourselves on offering undergraduate and graduate degree options, high-quality academic programs, and outstanding faculty engagement. We provide the perks of a larger institution, but with an intimacy and personal attention more closely associated with small, private colleges.
Utica College offers undergraduate and graduate degrees, hands-on curricula, direct support, and exceptional faculty to help you succeed. We believe that effective learning can take place anywhere and at any time. Our online degree programs provide the same rich academic experience that on-campus students receive with rigorous coursework, direct interaction with professors, and discussion with classmates.

Utica College prepares students for rewarding careers, responsible citizenship, enlightened leadership, and fulfilling lives. We create a community of learners, with diverse experiences and perspectives, by committing to our local heritage with global outreach. We encourage lifelong learning and promote the belief that discovery and application of knowledge enrich societies.
