Ithaca College: A Place Called Progress

A global destination for bold thinkers seeking to build thriving communities on a campus that is just the right size.

Our graduate and professional studies programs are structured to align with our institutional mission to educate, engage, and empower through theory, practice, and performance. Our talented faculty and staff collaborate to offer 3 combined undergraduate/graduate degrees, 11 graduate degrees (involving approximately 400 students), and professional certification or workshop programs.

Our Schools

United as one college, IC's five distinct schools are organized around specific expertise and focus: 

  • Roy H. Park School of Communications
  • School of Business 
  • School of Health Sciences and Human Performance
  • School of Humanities and Sciences
  • School of Music

The Office of Extended Studies oversees IC's professional certification programs.

Our Location

Our primary campus is located in beautiful Ithaca, New York, and is situated on South Hill overlooking Cayuga Lake. Offering a panoramic view of the lake and valley below, students often describe our setting as "a campus size that just fits."

While most IC graduate students complete their coursework on South Hill, our Physician Assistant learners also take coursework at a satellite location on the Ithaca Commons, about a five-minute drive from campus. In addition, many of our programs offer internships, fieldwork, or clinical rotations at various sites around the United States.

See our Travel and Transportation page for more information about how to travel in and out of the Ithaca area.

IC's professional certification programs are available off campus only, and both offer online options.
