FAQ

What can I study at RIT/NTID? What majors do you offer?

RIT offers more than 200 outstanding programs in business, engineering, art and design, science and mathematics, liberal arts, photography, hotel management, computer science, information technology and other areas. Few universities provide RIT's variety of career-oriented studies.

RIT is dedicated to providing superior career preparation for students with hearing loss. This has attracted excellent faculty to RIT and has led to the development of academic programs that combine outstanding teaching, a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, modern classroom and research facilities, and work experience gained through the university's cooperative education program. RIT is consistently ranked among top universities in U.S. News & World Report: America's Best Colleges.
