University of Jamestown Accelerated

Advance in your career.

All while you earn your degree.

Designed to help you move forward.

UJA is the online division of University of Jamestown—a private, liberal arts University that’s helped students succeed since 1883. Here, flexibility is valued. Support is a given. And helping you advance is always the end goal.


Students per cohort

Although our programs are online, you’ll still receive individualized attention from faculty. You can even virtually access the same support services as our on-campus students. That’s the beauty of a small university.

Certificate Tracks

While you’re working towards your degree, you’ll have the opportunity to simultaneously earn certificates. These tangible credentials count as credit, shape your expertise, and validate your skills pre-graduation.


Retention rate

After their first semester, 79% of our online students continue learning with us. (They like it here! The national average is just 62%.)

Explore our programs

With online bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, we give you the ultimate flexibility to advance your career. Classrooms are open 24/7. You'll have virtual opportunities for office hours and to meet as a group. But for most programs, there are no set class times. That means you can attend live or watch a replay.

“The 8-week year-round courses allow me to work at my full-time job, while raising my two children and attending their extracurricular activities. The smaller classes provide a more individualized learning opportunity, which not only forms a relationship with your professor but also other students.”

“If you are working full-time, have children, or are an older college student looking to excel at work, the programs here are amazing and the professors are so amazing at helping you through the classes at your own pace.”
Brittney Risser
