ABOUT THE SCHOOL

Chatham University was established in 1869 as the Pennsylvania Female College, as a means to provide women with a comparable education to that of men during the nineteenth century. Today, the university is fully coeducational, and is a private not-for-profit, four-year higher education institution, located in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The university retains two added campuses: Chatham Eastside near the Bakery Square development in Pittsburgh, and Eden Hall Campus in Richland Township. The university’s mission states: “Chatham University prepares women and men to be world ready: to build lives of purpose and value and fulfilling work.”

Chatham University offers more than 40 undergraduate degree majors, just over 20 master’s degree programs, and 4 doctoral degree programs. Accelerated graduate programs allow students to complete a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in as little as five years by supplementing undergraduate courses with graduate level coursework during the student’s senior year.
