For their entire four-year university career*, students are guided by a diverse and dedicated team of full-time and adjunct faculty made up of award-winning scholars and professionals. Each resident student is assigned an advisor who mentors their progress throughout their undergraduate career. Advisors are specialists in the student's major.
In keeping with our multidisciplinary approach, we encourage undergraduate students to complement their major field of study with courses from our array of unique and challenging minors, allowing students to diversify their knowledge and skills - a critical element that employers are looking for.
We also offer two associate degree programs: an Associate of Arts in Liberal Studies and an Associate of Applied Arts in International Business. Both are two-year programs; the former is designed to satisfy the needs of students seeking a general background in liberal arts with the possibility of specializing in selected areas, while the latter is designed to provide students with the basic skills required to operate in the business profession.

In the Senior year (fourth year), students begin their capstone project, a year-long closing chapter to their undergraduate degree. Working closely with their faculty supervisor, the capstone integrates theory with practice and enables students to demonstrate their mastery of what they have learned in their major program of study. Depending on the discipline, the capstone project may be a thesis, a research paper with a consultancy-style presentation, a production, a screenplay, or a portfolio of work.
*A three-year option is possible: Advanced standing may be granted for academic credits earned at institutions outside the university system of the United States. Candidates in possession of credentials such as the Italian Maturità, the International Baccalaureate, the British GCE A-Levels, and other equivalent programs will be evaluated and advanced credits will be granted on the basis of evaluation.
