Love to Learn

UConn’s rigorous majors prepare you for a lifetime of learning and accomplishment. You can select from a variety of UConn’s 110+ majors, completing your first 54 credits (typically two years) at UConn Waterbury, and then seamlessly transition to UConn’s main campus in Storrs to finish your bachelor’s degree.

Or, complete your degree at UConn Stamford by selecting from a variety of four-year degree programs.

Business Administration, Business Data Analytics, Digital Marketing and Analytics, Financial Management, Marine Sciences, and Maritime Studies require coursework at multiple UConn campuses and cannot be completed solely at the main campus in Storrs. Certain programs may require curriculum across multiple campuses to complete an approved plan of study.
