Our History and Vision

The University of Jamestown (UJ) has been providing students with high quality educational experiences for 138 years. Students can choose from our over 40 undergraduate majors, 5 master’s degree programs and a doctorate in physical therapy. The University has been ranked as a “Best Regional College” in the Midwest from US News and World Report, and through the available online degree and certificate programs, more students than ever have access to top-tier education that can advance their careers with flexibility and convenience.

Now, we are excited to continue this tradition through University of Jamestown Accelerated.

This new division is an essential step in fulfilling the vision of UJ. The University is committed to being the best career-oriented liberal arts university in the Midwest.  As we listen to executives and leaders across the region the message is consistent: there is demand for skilled workers who can lead- and can lead now. 

In response to the growing need for talent, University of Jamestown Accelerated was born to provide all learners the opportunity to skill, reskill or upskill through courses that get them there faster.
