The University of Rochester, founded in 1850, is a private research university located in Rochester, N.Y., on the south shore of Lake Ontario. The University offers a unique undergraduate curriculum, with no required courses, that emphasizes a broad liberal education through majors, minors, and course “clusters”—a Rochester innovation—in the three main areas of knowledge: humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences/engineering. The University is also home to the world-renowned Eastman School of Music as well as graduate professional schools of business, education, medicine, and nursing.
