The History of University of the Assumption

The university was originally called Assumption Junior College and was on the third floor of the Assumpta Building in downtown San Fernando. The school was under the watchful eyes of Sr. Gunfrida Schneyer, O.S.B., who was at the time the Superior of the Community of Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing (Germany).

At present, the university is offering its newest programs bachelor of Science in Tourism Management, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Communications Engineering.
