Pitt-Bradford was recognized for having 45 percent of its students enrolled in STEM majors and an average class size in STEM classes of 19 students.
“All of my classes have been very small,” said Kayla Mascaro, a chemistry major from Warren, “so I can get a lot of one-on-one time with my professors.”
STEM Jobs also pointed out that Pitt-Bradford has programs aligned to high-growth and high-paying STEM jobs as well as high job placement in STEM fields. Finally, STEM Jobs recognized the diversity of students graduating from Pitt-Bradford with STEM degrees.

Others went on to pursue graduate degrees at St. Bonaventure University, Gannon University, Villa Maria College, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, Rochester Institute of Technology and the New York College of Chiropractic.

“Pitt-Bradford gave me the research opportunities I needed for graduate school,” said Mariah Cole of Milan, who graduated in April with a degree in biology and is a student at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health.
