The academic program at Union redefines traditional liberal arts education.



A Union education is both deep and broad. Our students develop in-depth expertise in their chose disciplines, and because we emphasize the intersections between fields, they also get the kind of interdisciplinary exposure that lets them tackle problems from multiple angles.

This is what our graduates have been doing since 1795—using their Union education to take on important issues in our world. It's still why students come to Union today.

A Union education encourages students to explore the creative spaces where ideas intersect and new solutions merge, and it lets them apply those ideas in practical settings. Drawing connections among the arts, engineering, humanities, science and social sciences, and applying those connections to problem-solving is where our students truly excel.
