2018 Program Showcases
Niagara University's Program Showcases are mini-open houses that connect prospective students and their families with current students, alumni and faculty from specific academic programs.
These casual events are excellent opportunities for you to gain knowledge about a subject area that may interest you. You'll also hear how working with our world-class professors will put you on the fast track to personal and professional success.
And if you don't see a major listed here that you're considering, let us know and we'll make special arrangements for you to meet the members of our campus community who experience The Power of Niagara University every single day.
Campus tours are offered prior to all on-campus Program Showcases, beginning at 5:15 p.m.
Jan. 30 | 6-7:30 p.m.
RIT Inn & Conference Center
If you’ve ever thought about becoming a teacher, now is the time. Have confidence in knowing that opportunities in the field of education are growing like never before — New York state alone will need 180,000 new teachers over the next 10 years.
Our College of Education is one of only 10 in the state to hold prestigious CAEP accreditation (bonus: it’s also accredited in Ontario!). Unlike most colleges, undergraduates at NU are admitted into the program during their very first semester and participate in at least nine internships before they graduate. Those are the types of experiences that provide you with clarity of direction and a heightened sense of purpose.
What’s more, graduate students can earn a master’s degree and be certified to teach in as little as one year.
Attend our Program Showcase to learn more about what distinguishes teacher education at Niagara and why our graduates are “Ready on Day 1.”
Dec. 8 | 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Niagara University, as one of the oldest professional theatre training programs in the region, is well known for preparing students for showstopping careers that take them from Broadway to Hollywood. Through one-on-one mentorship with our renowned faculty, you’ll gain confidence – both onstage and backstage – throughout every stage of your experiential learning process.
Since 1964, NU Theatre has proudly entertained and educated audiences through a variety of annual productions, from classical and contemporary plays to traditional musicals and new works. You’ll achieve a heightened sense of purpose due to a diverse production schedule that provides an artistic playground for the growth and development of our student artists. Moreover, our accomplished alumni – men and women with credits from Broadway, international tours, film, TV and radio – will offer you clarity of direction for the exciting future that awaits you.
During our Program Showcase, you’ll be able to learn more about our unique theatre programs, connect with faculty and current students and even participate in mini-masterclasses!
Each student who attends will receive two free tickets to a 2018-2019 NU Theatre production.

When it comes to experiential learning, you can be confident that our internationally renowned College of Hospitality and Tourism Management is among the best – anywhere.
The first in the world to offer a bachelor’s degree in tourism, the college is a founding member of the Hotel Schools of Distinction, a global network of premier higher-ed institutions. The resulting clarity of direction has helped our student chapter of the Club Managers Association of America to earn the No. 1 ranking in the country for an astounding nine years (and counting).
We offer opportunities to achieve a heightened sense of purpose through study abroad programs in more than 30 countries, and students can earn a dual degree from NU and the highly regarded International University of Applied Sciences in Germany.
Our students have participated in internships aboard cruise ships and at the Super Bowl and other major sports and tourism venues.
