Study at Adamson University Philippines

Adamson University was founded in 1932 by the late Dr. George Lucas Adamson, together with his cousins, Alexander Adamson and George Athos Adamson. The initial efforts to guide the Adamson School of Industrial Chemistry were directed towards the developmental needs of the Philippines, notably in the areas of science and chemical technology. On February 5, 1941, the school was granted University status by the Department of Education. On December 4, 1964, the University was turned over to the Vincentian Fathers of the Congregation of the Mission ( CM ) and was incorporated into the Adamson Ozanam Education Insti- tutions, Inc. As a Catholic University, it has gained a meaningful Christian presence in the academic world and as such, is actively involved in the development of people, especially the poor.
Today, Adamson University has attained universal recognition as one of the leading institutions for Graduate Education, Laws, Arts, Sciences, Engineering, Pharmacy, Architecture, Business Administration, Teacher Education, and for Secondary, Elementary, and Pre-School Education.
