The University aims to provide students with a range of knowledge and skills which can, with appropriate motivation and initiative, be used in a variety of ways after graduation.
The undergraduate programs offered at the University of Rhode Island are presented by college.
Study options vary from the traditional liberal education to programs that are heavily vocationally oriented. Successful completion of any course of study at the University, however, does not guarantee that the student will find either a specific kind or level of employment.
Students interested in the career opportunities related to particular programs of study are encouraged to consult University College advisors, the appropriate department chairperson, or Career Services. For students who are uncertain about their career choices, the Counseling Center also offers help.
