About U of H

While all ages, all degree levels and all types of academic and cultural offerings can be found at University of Hartford (UH), the UH experience is hardly impersonal.

Located in Hartford, Connecticut, Hartford’s undergraduate academics include more than 80 programs, both broad and specialized in the fields of liberal and performing arts and the sciences.

Art History, Education, English and Sociology are some of the broader, more commonly offered majors. Some examples of how specialized Hartford’s programs can get are majors in Audio Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Jazz Studies, Judaic Studies, Music Management and Acting.

There are also special bachelor’s degree programs designed specifically for adults and senior citizens.

Its Hartt Community School gives local residents the chance to take performing arts classes in Music, Dance and Theatre.

UH even has a two-year degree for those who wish to complete their bachelor’s elsewhere.

On-campus theatre and dance performances, concerts, art galleries and lectures complete the rich and vibrant UH experience.

However, neither the academic life nor the student life has the impersonal feeling that comes with a large university. Classes are small, faculty-student interaction is common, and student activities are accessible.

Admissions for undergraduate applicants are based on high school academic performance, a personal essay and extracurricular activities, among other things.

All students may apply for financial aid to see if they qualify.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2018

Overall Rating

The University has an extremely personal feel to it, I like to describe it as a "family environment" because you really get to connect with not only students but also the faculty and staff here on campus. This campus has a wonderful variety of activities to become involved in and make lasting friendships through the organizations here at UHart. The general idea is that students on this campus are very connected to one another and it is a great environment to be a part of.
