Adelphi University has a rich history, an exciting present, and a limitless future. Founded in 1896, Adelphi University is Long Island's oldest private coeducational institution of higher learning. As Adelphi grows, our academic programs evolve to reflect the needs and interests of our close to 8,500 students from 41 states and 63 foreign countries. Recent program additions include a B.F.A. in studio art for aspiring visual arts professionals, as well as new and updated bachelor's programs in criminal justice administration, computer management and information sciences, and school psychology. The university has recently made significant investments in its 75-acre Garden City campus, including an extensive new performing arts, recreation, and sports complex, which opened in fall 2008. Adelphi opened an 18,000-square-foot fine arts building in 2006 and a new residence hall in 2003. Our student-athletes compete in 21 Division I and II intercollegiate sports as well as in an array of intramural activities. Students also benefit from Long Island’s many resources, and are a 40-minute train ride from New York City. Through its schools and programs-the College of Arts and Sciences, the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, the Honors College, the Adelphi University Ruth S. Ammon School of Education, University College, and the Schools of Business, Nursing, and Social Work-Adelphi offers more than 100 career-advancing undergraduate and graduate programs of study at our main Garden City campus and at off-campus locations in Hauppauge, Manhattan, and Poughkeepsie.
