List of UCF Colleges by Academic Year

Compiled by Richard H. Harrison II, Associate University Librarian, December 2011

The following list of UCF colleges by academic year was compiled from university catalogs, supplemented by information from various colleges’ web sites.

When Florida Technological University (FTU) opened its doors in 1967, the inaugural colleges were Business Administration, Education, Engineering and Technology, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Natural Sciences.

In the summer of 1978, the College of Health Related Professions was established; in 1981-1982, it became simply the College of Health, followed by name changes in 1990-1991 (College of Health and Professional Studies) and 1991-1992 (College of Health and Public Affairs).

The Honors College was created in 1988; with a gift from Al and Nancy Burnett, the name was changed to the Burnett Honors College in 2002.

The College of Medicine was established in March 2006. The former Burnett College of Biomedical Sciences, created in 2005, became a part of the College of Medicine in 2008 and the name was changed to the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences.

Nursing began as a program in 1978, became a school in 1995, and was established as a college in July 2007.

CREOL – the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers – was established in 1985; as an outgrowth of the Center, the College of Optics and Photonics was established in 2004.

Hospitality Management began as a program in 1983 in the College of Business Administration, an outgrowth of the Dick Pope Institute for Tourism Studies established in the College in 1979. Hospitality Management became a school in July 2000 and the Rosen College of Hospitality Management in January 2004 with a gift from Orlando hotelier Harris Rosen.
