Academics

A professor and a student work out a math problem at the blackboard

There’s a reason IUP is consistently cited by The Princeton Review’s Best Colleges guides.

What makes the IUP experience stand out is this: At mega-universities, students might catch a glimpse of the professor; too busy doing research to be in the classroom, he or she passes the class off to the graduate assistant. Not at IUP, where the professors who conduct the important research also teach the classes. Often, those same faculty members will share research opportunities with graduate and undergraduate students, alike.

At IUP, students find a variety of academic programs and resources for the taking. Choose a traditional course of study, such as philosophy, English, or anthropology, or concentrate on a career-oriented, applied major, such as safety sciences or respiratory care. Whatever your major, you can expand your horizons and your career options by pursuing internships and study-abroad opportunities, or you can complement your academic experience by participating in opportunities such as the Undergraduate Scholars Forum.

And, there is help when you need it. Many students take advantage of the Learning Enhancement Center, the Writing Center, the Career Development Center, and other resources that assist them in reaching their goals and becoming what they aspire to be.
