Iona College takes its name from the island of Iona just off the west coast of Scotland. On this tiny island an Irish monk, Columba, established an abbey from which missionaries went forth to teach. It was in the spirit of this heritage that the religious order of educators, the Congregation of Christian Brothers, founded Iona College in New Rochelle, New York in 1940.
In 1962, Iona began its graduate program, offering its first advanced degree (Pastoral Counseling). Today, the School of Arts and Science offers 16 master's and certificate programs to over 800 students.
Iona College offers many important aspects of a graduate education that other schools do not. From our commitment to a technology-based education and academic programs that offers the most viable and flexible career options, Iona meets the needs of adult students. Classes meet once per week and are conveniently scheduled during late afternoon and evening hours. Some of our graduate programs also offer classes on the weekends and through distance learning.
A dynamic and dedicated faculty, all accomplished experts in their field, ensure that you will never be just another face in the crowd. Classes are kept intentionally small, usually fewer than 20 students, allowing for lively discussion and interaction both in and outside of the classroom.
Strategically positioned between the Tappan Zee and George Washington bridges, the Iona's Rockland Graduate Center boasts high-tech classrooms, computer labs, a library, a lounge, conference rooms and administrative offices.More »
