Union College- New York

School Overview

Redefining liberal education for the 21st Century

Since 1795, Union College has been defining—and redefining—the meaning of a liberal arts education.

When the classics were considered the only acceptable field of study, Union introduced a bachelor's degree with an emphasis on history, modern languages, science and mathematics.

We were the first liberal arts college in the nation to offer engineering.

We created a new vision for campus life by establishing Minerva Houses, which bring student and faculty together outside the classroom for both social and academic activities.
