Post University was founded in 1890 with a mission to give students the educational foundation they need to pursue careers in the fields that interest them most. In the last 130 years, the world around us has changed, from slide rulers and typewriters to laptops and smart phones. And we’ve evolved with it to provide an exceptional learning experience, in and out of the classroom. Today, our students have more learning options beyond the traditional campus experience. They’re able to learn, grow, and prepare for a better future online in their homes, as they travel, or in one of our classrooms. At Post University, we understand how important it is to be there for our students every step of the way. From the dynamic culture and tight-knit community feel of our traditional New England campus to the online convenience of our distance-learning programs, our students benefit from the insights of industry experts, a curriculum grounded in what employers really want, and the support of a university that cares for their success as much as they do.
