Rochester students work with and are trained by professors who are committed teachers as well as acclaimed researchers. Our unique academic programs, fostering interaction between researchers and students, draw national attention.
- The distinctive Rochester Curriculum, via majors, minors, and “clusters” of thematically linked courses produces students well versed in a variety of subjects who are eager to learn more and trained to blend research, analysis and communication skills.
- The University of Rochester recently added both a Business major and minor, preparing our students for business opportunities while complementing academic undertakings in liberal arts, engineering or other disciplines. The major and minor requires completion of courses taught by faculty of the College and of the William E. Simon Graduate School of Business Administration. Core courses within statistics, computer science, economics and accounting are supplemented by specialized “track” courses in Accounting/Finance, Public Sector Analysis, Personnel Management, Marketing, Production, and Information Systems.
