John L. Lahey, PhD, became president of Quinnipiac in 1987. Further, President Lahey expanded Quinnipiac from a college to a university, which now has a college of arts & sciences and 8 professional schools, including the School of Law (1992), the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine (2013) and, our newest addition, the School of Engineering (2016).
In addition, we offer accelerated and dual-degree programs such as a 3+3 BA/JD degree, a 3+1 BS/MBA, a 6-year doctor of physical therapy, and many flexible online programs delivered through Quinnipiac University Online, which allows you to study at the same time you’re gaining valuable work experience. Moreover, our integrated curriculum allows students from different disciplines to study together and learn from each other. This distinctive combination reflects an extraordinary level of academic innovation. From our alumni satisfaction rates to our career placement rates and our license/certification rates, we demonstrate our effectiveness every day.
