About University of Bridgeport
The University of Bridgeport offers career-oriented undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees and programs for people seeking personal and professional growth. The University promotes academic excellence, personal responsibility and commitment to service. Distinctive curricula in an international, culturally diverse supportive learning environment prepare graduates for life and leadership in an increasingly interconnected world. It is an independent and non-sectarian.
UB today continues its commitment to excellence as it maintains its tradition of responding to the changing needs of society through the liberal arts and its professional programs. Programs are focused so that students receive the kind of personal advising and attention usually found only at small colleges. Furthermore, the University takes full advantage of its location in a progressive urban setting, using regional resources as ?living laboratories? to supplement the traditional academic instruction offered on the campus. Through co-operative education programs, students can learn from experience by integrating classroom studies on campus with supervised employment in industrial, service, and government sectors.
The UB instructional staff consists of 121 fulltime faculty, and nearly all hold doctoral or terminal degrees in their fields. The regular faculty is augmented by approximately 370 adjunct faculty. Faculty honors include Fulbright Scholars, National Science Foundation Fellows, Ford Fellows, National Endowment for the Humanities Fellows, American Council for Learned Societies Scholars, Phi Beta Kappa Scholars, Phi Kappa Phi Scholars and Sigma Xi Scholars.
The University of Bridgeport is located fifty-five miles from New York City. Bridgeport, Connecticut?s largest city, borders the 53-acre campus to the north. Seaside Park and the Long Island Sound, with some of the finest sandy beaches between New York and Cape Cod, mark the southern boundary. The unique location of the campus offers a variety of advantages to the University community. The Sound and the Park are settings for studies in marine biology and for the enjoyment of sun and recreation. The city and county provide opportunities for becoming involved in work-study programs with schools, government and some of the country?s largest Fortune 500 and multi-national corporations.
