Make a difference by getting a degree through the O'Neill School

If you want to make a difference in the world, whether it is in public service, a nonprofit organization, or the corporate world, O'Neill may be the right choice for you. Our areas of study are multidisciplinary in nature, so many of our students are interested in fields both inside and outside of the O'Neill School. We encourage you to explore all areas of study that interest you—most of our degree offerings have room to add minors or certificates.
