Founded in 1906, Suffolk University is located in the center of downtown Boston and all of the city’s boundless opportunities. Our innovative offerings include more than 60 undergraduate programs and over 50 graduate programs. Students come to Suffolk’s College of Arts & Sciences, Sawyer Business School, and Law School to gain the knowledge and essential hands-on experiential learning they need to become leaders in their fields. Every year, the most academically talented, motivated students are invited to join the Honors Program, a rigorous course of study that prepares them to excel in graduate school and the professional world. Undergraduates can study at both our flagship Boston campus and our very own campus in Madrid, Spain. We are dedicated to helping our students make their way—however they define it. No wonder 96% of the Class of 2018 were employed or enrolled in graduate school within a year of graduation.
