Founded in 1906, Suffolk is a private, coeducational, fully accredited university offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in the College of Arts and Sciences, Sawyer Business School and Law School. The University also maintains a campus housing various undergraduate programs in Madrid, Spain.
We take pride in being a personal, student-centered school, where faculty and administrators know students by name. There are 90+ academic programs for undergraduate and graduate study, which emphasize quality teaching, small class size and real-world career applications. Class sizes are small in the undergraduate programs averaging 20 students. Our location in the heart of Boston provides our students with outstanding internships or part-time work that help support their academic goals as they move forward into a professional career.
A diverse population of 5030 undergraduate students, 1106 graduate students, 1065 Law School students, from 34 U.S. states and 100 different countries. 21% of our student body is comprised of international students. Suffolk has expanded its founding vision of opportunity to a global stage.
