24 Majors.
And Infinite Possibilities.

Rochester University offers you three programs to choose from, depending on where you are in your academic journey:

  • Undergraduate Learning, for students who are attending college for the first time or transferring to RU from another college or university to finish out their studies in a traditional semester-long, daytime format.
  • Graduate Learning, for students who have already obtained their bachelor’s degree and wish to pursue a master’s degree.
  • Accelerated Learning, for students who have some or no college in their past and wish to complete a bachelor’s degree while taking classes in 8-week sessions, either online or during the evening, to accommodate their work schedules.

With three models of learning and 24 majors, RU provides you with multiple pathways to a well-rounded liberal arts education. Rochester University cultivates academic excellence, principled character, servant leadership, and global awareness through a rigorous education experience infusing liberal arts and professional studies within an inclusive Christian community.
