Academics The University of Hartford offers a variety of academic programs available at few universities of its size yet strives to foster individual attention. With approximately 7,000 full-time and part-time graduate and undergraduate students, the campus is large enough to achieve the goals of a university without becoming a massive, impersonal institution. Many opportunities for career preparation can be realized within the 84 bachelor’s degree programs, 11 associate’s degrees, 38 graduate degrees, and seven certificates or diplomas offered by the University. Close student-faculty relationships are a hallmark of the University, which has a student-to-faculty ratio of 9 to 1. Faculty choose to come here because teaching is their priority, and students know they can turn to their professors for a deeper understanding of their areas of interest and of life in general. A supportive environment that allows a healthy mix of research, teaching, and community-involvement, attracts world-renowned scholars, acclaimed visual and performing artists, and industry leaders who are dedicated to helping students excel.
