Located in Rockford, Illinois, Rockford’s curriculum is based in the liberal arts and sciences with bachelor’s degrees offered in such fields as Classical Studies, Education, English, Psychology, Religion and Theatre Arts.

Accelerated adult programs and master’s degrees in teaching and business are also offered.

With a small student to faculty ratio, Rockford College provides an intimate learning environment and fosters individualized attention.
