Located on 710 acres on the South Coast of Massachusetts, UMass Dartmouth enrolls more than 9,300 students in more than 40 undergraduate and 25 graduate degree programs, including four at the doctoral level.
Programs are offered in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Charlton College of Business, the College of Engineering, the College of Nursing, the College of Visual and Performing Arts, and the School for Marine Science and Technology (located on the waterfront in New Bedford). Other University sites include the Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Center in Fall River, the College of Visual and Performing Arts in New Bedford. The University also operates continuing and professional education centers in the central business districts of both New Bedford and Fall River.
The campus is among the fastest growing in New England with its overall student population increasing from 6,500 to 8,700 over the past decade, its on-campus student population increasing 33 percent in five years, and its research enterprise expanding from $4 million to $20 million over the last decade.
Established in 1895 with the opening of technical institutes in Fall River and New Bedford, the University has grown in size and impact through a series of mergers. In 1960 the two institutes merged in Dartmouth to form a comprehensive university that later merged with the Swain School of Design. In 1991, the campus joined the University of Massachusetts system.
