A city rich in culture and progress. A university where learning knows no bounds. Since 1906, Suffolk University has been woven into Boston's thriving urban landscape, offering a truly immersive environment in which to live, learn, and explore. It's the ideal location for Suffolk to provide students with the keys to successful lives and careers: access, opportunity, and experience. Suffolk University offers a wide range of undergraduate, graduate, and law degree programs with real-world experience at their cores. Accessibility is in our DNA, which is why we offer flexible ways to learn, from part-time and evening schedules to certificates for working professionals and online classes. And our small class sizes allow faculty to learn each student's name, recognize his or her potential, and build important mentoring relationships.
At Suffolk University we are driven by the power of education, inclusion, and engagement to change lives and positively impact communities. Committed to excellence, we provide students with experiential and transformational learning opportunities that begin in the center of Boston, reach across the globe, and lead to extraordinary outcomes for our graduates.
Located in the heart of downtown Boston, Suffolk University gives students unparalleled access to this dynamic city and all it has to offer. Whether they major in government, communications, psychology, sociology, theater, international studies, environmental studies, marketing, entrepreneurship, finance, global business or any other discipline, our 5,117 undergraduates come to Suffolk to gain the knowledge and hands-on experiential learning they need to become leaders in their chosen fields.
We take pride in being a personal, student-centered university, where faculty members lead small classes and focus on nurturing student success. Suffolk offers a 15:1 student-faculty ratio; the average class size is 22 students. Undergraduates may study at both our flagship Boston campus and our campus in Madrid, Spain.
We are steps - or a short T ride - away from Boston's top employers, and we prepare students for professional success from day one. Our partnerships with myriad institutions in Boston, across Massachusetts, and around the world grant Suffolk students a wealth of choices when it comes to internships and co-op experiences. Indeed, 96% of recent graduates were employed or enrolled in graduate school within a year of graduation.
Last year, 95% of our incoming freshmen received financial aid. Suffolk automatically considers all applicants-domestic and international-for merit-based aid.
