Our Difference

UPJ02_003_w240

Our program is unique from those offered by other colleges in three critical ways.

First, our program is rich in the liberal arts. While our pre-business requirements are similar to most other colleges and universities offering degrees in business, Pitt-Johnstown's curriculum provides for an exposure to a variety of liberal arts courses that are designed to enrich and broaden your understanding of the world in which we live.

Second, we make every attempt to limit our class size to less than 35 students. In some cases the classes are limited to a maximum of 20 students. The small classroom environment promotes a higher level of interaction between the professor and the student.

Third, our program places great emphasis on application as well as theory. We encourage our faculty to develop student projects for the classroom that take advantage of real world challenges.
