Nazareth College is a private, co-educational comprehensive college with a liberal arts and sciences core. Founded in 1924 by the Sisters of St. Joseph, Nazareth has been independent for more than 30 years. Situated on nearly 150 wooded acres near the village of Pittsford, the current campus is comprised of more than 20 buildings, most of them connected by an underground tunnel system. In early 2003, Nazareth's campus doubled in size with the purchase of a beautiful wooded lot adjacent to the campus, along with several buildings appropriate for academic use. A three-phase master plan is underway to utilize the new land in a way that will respond to the demand for a Nazareth education, a demand that has grown significantly along with the college's reputation for quality and value. Nazareth offers a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology as well a degree in Business Administration with many different specializations.
