Our convenient location in the scenic Hudson Valley area, just 17 miles from New York City, feels like a home away from home, in our friendly, yet challenging and supportive atmosphere. Since 1952, Dominican College has provided students with the environment to cultivate unique bonds and life-long relationships. The aim of Dominican College is to promote educational excellence, leadership, and service in an environment characterized by respect for the individual and concern for the community. The College is an independent institution of higher learning, Catholic in origin and heritage. In the tradition of its Dominican founders, it fosters the active, shared pursuit of truth and embodies an ideal of education rooted in the values of reflective understanding and compassionate involvement.
Committed to building its programs upon a strong liberal arts foundation, the College maintains a student-centered climate and offers an array of degree opportunities in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business, and the professions on the graduate and undergraduate levels.
