Your career starts at Union.

Union College offers more than 50 majors, minors and emphases in 27 fields of study. Here's six of our most popular programs.


Our students consistently pass the NCLEX-RN (the national nursing certification exam) on their first try at a 10 percent higher than the national average. We accept students each semester into the nursing program and the best part: there's no waiting list.


We connect our students to business professionals in our mentorship program. More than 90 percent of our graduates find jobs in their field.


Our students start observing and working in classrooms their freshman year, and their professors continue training and supporting long after graduation. Nationally, 50 percent of all teachers leave the profession within five years, but at Union College 90 percent of our elementary education graduates are still working in their field.

International Rescue and Relief

The only bachelor of its kind in the United States, this major gives hands-on experience to students wanting to be doctors, physician assistants, aid workers, paramedics, fire fighters, law enforcement and more.

Biomedical Science

“Pre-med students love this major because it gives them great preparation for the MCAT (medical school entrance exam) while allowing them to study another area (such as communication, music, international rescue and relief or business), which can help them stand out when applying for medical school.

Physician Assistant Studies

Union's only masters program is outstanding and in high demand. Every Union PA graduate has gotten a job within six months of graduation.
