Founded in 1876, Juniata is an independent, co-educational college of liberal arts and sciences that draws students from more than 35 U.S. states and dozens of nations in Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania and South America. Juniata’s exceptional programs in science and education; innovative business and international studies offerings; signature programs in peace studies, museum studies, and integrated media arts; and experience-driven humanities offerings pair with the Juniata College Curriculum’s focus on local and global engagement.
Juniata is among the nation’s top private colleges due to its educational quality, commitment to access, and distinctive environment. Students use the College’s Program of Emphasis (POE) system to work with two faculty advisers to shape their education. The POE is more flexible than a major and empowers Juniata students to pursue varied interests and talents. One third of Juniata students author individualized POEs.
