Academic Divisions

The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown offers a high-quality educational experience in a supportive living-learning environment, which is grounded in the liberal arts and sciences, is current, and is responsive to both our students’ personal and professional needs and to our communities’ needs.  

Pitt-Johnstown's unique RealWorld Action Program empowers students to develop as agents of positive change in our communities and around the world.

The University offers 48 major fields of study in six Academic Divisions.

Pitt-Johnstown’s record of excellence is reflected, in part, by the accomplishments of students, faculty, and staff; the record of achievements of more than 20,500 alumni; the satisfaction of area employers; and the commendations of many external organizations.
