Academics

A Union College education will prepare you for today's careers and tomorrow's world. Through an academically rigorous liberal arts curriculum, you'll experience our "big picture" approach to education. Instead of focusing on one subject, you'll study many disciplines—and see how they all connect to one another and why that matters. Instead of sitting through long lectures, you'll interact with professors and get to know each other personally. Instead of being told what to think, you'll learn to speak your mind.

Our small classes and low teacher-student ratio mean you'll get the attention you need to ensure success. We offer 32 majors, 29 minors and require up to 45 hours in our liberal education core—classes that will help you define your values, beliefs, viewpoints and ideas.
