It is my pleasure to welcome you to the University of Connecticut Torrington—home to the Litchfield County Writers Project. We take pride in our caring, supportive campus community, an outstanding faculty committed to the success of our students and the strong “town and gown” relationship with Torrington.
An increasing number of students complete their entire undergraduate degree at UConn Torrington. We offer seven majors (in partnership with the Greater Hartford and Waterbury campuses): American Studies, Business and Technology, English, General Studies, Human Development and Family Studies, Professional Studies, Psychology, and Urban and Community Studies.
UConn Torrington is proud to be an active participant in the life and culture of the city of Torrington and Litchfield County. The on-going revitalization of the area is as important to us as it is to all the citizens who live and work in the region. The programs that we offer have strong community ties in the form of student internships and service learning opportunities. Course offerings are enriched by the participation of the talented people who call Litchfield County home. Our long-standing Litchfield County Writers Project and our newer ARTS Project offer educational and cultural opportunities to the campus.
UConn Torrington offers challenging and rewarding courses which require students to think critically and creatively. One of our most important goals is to graduate students who are well informed and responsible citizens, trained to be successful in today’s and tomorrow’s work place.
On behalf of our faculty and staff I invite you to get to know us and learn about the strong academic programs and supportive campus environment for which UConn Torrington is justly proud.
