Today we’re focusing on University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, based in Bradford, Pa. Pitt-Bradford is for students who want to earn a world-renowned degree in a personalized, supportive, and friendly environment. Students can choose from more than 40 majors and 50 minors, concentrations and programs, many of which offer unique opportunities for study both in the classroom and beyond.
Classes are small, giving students the opportunity to world closely with professors and seek one-on-one guidance. Pitt-Bradford also offers world-class internships and research opportunities to students, taking them beyond the classroom. The school’s robust Career Services Office and informal alumni network make this possible. Outside the classroom, students are encouraged to participate in a friendly residence life environment and many athletic, recreational, and cultural activities.
Pitt-Bradford works hard to make its degrees affordable for students. More than 94 percent of students receive financial aid. During the 2012-2013 academic year, the average financial aid award was $17,489 for in-state students and $19,500 for out-of-state students. For this reason among others, The Princeton Review named Pitt-Bradford one of the 150 Best Value Colleges in 2012.
Because Pitt-Bradford is part of the University of Pittsburgh system, students graduate with the prestigious University of Pittsburgh degree, which is recognized all over the world. Offering a large-school degree with a small-school experience is key in achieving Pitt-Bradford’s mission of rising above expectations and taking students beyond.
