Utica College was founded in 1946, after serving for about a decade as a regional campus of Syracuse University. SU continued to operate the Utica Campus until 1995, when UC became a financially and legally independent entity. As one of New York's premier Private Universities, Utica offers both Undergraduate and Graduate-level Degree programs, and has been offering its own Graduate Degrees since 1999. In 2011, Utica began offering the UC baccalaureate Degree to all of its entering students.
Known largely for its upper tier Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy programs, Utica offers approximately 40 majors with 25 minors, as well as Masters' Degree and pre-Professional Certification programs. These courses are spread across several Institutes and Centers, which include the Center for Identity Management & Information Protection, Centro Studi Casauriensi, Mohawk Valley Center for Economic Eduction and the Institute of Applied Ethics, just to name a few. Flexing its innovative muscle, Utica's Masters' Degree in Economic Crime Management was the first of its kind.
UC places a special emphasis on what goes on outside of the classroom towards student development. In fact, the College's Student Affairs Mission states that the School is responsible for providing opportunities for students to learn and grow in areas of effective interpersonal skills, responsible citizenship, self-awareness and humanitarianism, among others. If you're looking for an Institution that will help you not only prepare for Career Success, but also with becoming the adult you want to be, Utica College is for you.
