President’s Message

Welcome to the University of Bridge­port’s 2023-2024 academic year. No matter your degree program or area of study, we are here to support you every step of the way on your path to a successful career and an amazing future. We are proud to provide you with career-oriented programs and flexible degree options that prepare you to succeed in life.

In this catalog you will find programs on the cusp of innovation. Bridgeport has a storied history of firsts, like the world’s first school of dental hygiene and the first master’s degree in Nutrition in the country. That spirit of innovation continues today, and we have expanded our degree programs into fields like engineering, computer science and artificial intelligence to train you for careers that are in-demand now and in the future.

As President of the University of Bridgeport, I want you to know that UB is a supportive community that embraces diversity and will nurture you on your unique paths to personal and professional growth. Helping students to achieve their potential is at the core of what we do, and we know that higher education serves students best when it embraces the qualities that make us unique. We all learn - and are inspired to learn - in different ways. Some of us are visual learners. Some need to relate what we’re learning to our own lives to make it meaningful.

During your time at UB, you will also be given the tools to take control of your own learning. This catalog is an important part of that toolbox. I encourage you to read it carefully, especially the introductory pages and the pages relating to the program you are enrolled in. Taking charge of your own education begins with knowing the way, and this catalog is both compass and guide. I look forward to seeing where it takes you.
