How I Created My Own Degree

Music on the River Campus

The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry[…]

This program is a three-semester second-degree program for individuals with a bachelor’s degree in something other than nursing. After completing[…]

I’m originally from New Hartford, NY, and studied political science at Syracuse University as a scholarship athlete in swimming. I’ve been working for the University of Rochester for about 10[…]

The CAPs programs assure admission into a University of Rochester graduate school in business, engineering, or education. Get ready for some acronyms: There’s Rochester Early Business Scholars (REBS), Graduate Engineering at[…]
