About Ithaca CollegeAbout Ithaca College
A brief history of the College


From its founding in 1892 as the Ithaca Conservatory of Music, Ithaca College has distinguished itself as an impressive liberal arts institution. Ithaca interweaves the threads of a liberal arts education with professional preparation to expose students to a wide range of ideas and experiences, which allows them to take advantage of Ithaca’s wealth of academic opportunities across disciplinary boundaries.   We believe life is not a spectator sport and that the educational experience of our student shouldn’t be either. We pride ourselves on providing a hands-on, student-centered education by offering programs designed to let students apply what they’ve learned from day one. Ithaca's emphasis on teaching and mentoring sets our faculty apart. Accomplished leaders in their fields, our faculty share their passion and wisdom directly with students by regularly collaborating on projects, whether conducting lab research or co-authoring and presenting papers. 

Coeducational and nonsectarian, the College is an internationally known and respected institution with approximately 6,400 undergraduate and 450 graduate students, who come to Ithaca from nearly every state and close to 80 countries. The curriculum provides more than 2,000 courses in 101 undergraduate and 27 graduate degree programs available through the College’s five schools – Business, Communications, Health Sciences and Human Performance, Humanities and Sciences, and Music – and two divisions – International and Interdisciplinary Studies and Extended Studies. U.S. News and World Report has rated it one of the top 10 master’s level Universities in the northeast for well over 10 years. While the breadth of curriculum is normally found only at larger universities, Ithaca holds fast to its tradition of close, personal instruction (12:1 student-faculty ratio).
