UC Academics

UC offers an education that’s both rigorous and relevant — hundreds of academic programs, many nationally ranked, all with opportunities for real-world learning. Which only makes sense, since we invented cooperative education back in 1906.

Today, real-world learning is more than co-op. It’s everything from study abroad to internships to artistic performances. It’s a way of putting into immediate practice what you’ve learned in the classroom. And it’s the reason you’ll graduate with transcripts and a resume.

Majors & Programs

At UC, you'll make a connection between learning and doing. We invented the co-op system and added even more ways for you to get real-world experience to help you become smarter, more experienced and better prepared for a professional career.

You'll have access to these experiential learning opportunities, no matter which major you select. If you already know what you want to do, UC admits students directly to the major to which they apply. If you're undecided, there many choices to explore and dedicated advising services to help you find the path that's right for you.

Our University Honors Program allows you to take academics to a whole new level. It’s about diving in, taking risks and discovering your passion. Only the top 7 percent of UC students are considered for University Honors. But you don’t have to apply. If you enroll and have what it takes, we’ll find you!
