Academics

  • What kind of college experience do you want?

    At very large universities, you can expect to see some very large class sizes and have graduate students teaching more of your classes. While at very small colleges, opportunities can be downsized as well, with fewer professors, fewer majors, and fewer research projects.

    IUP stands out. Not too big. Not too small. Our professors teach. And do important research, too. Many share research opportunities with students like you, graduate and undergraduate students, alike.

    At IUP, students come first. Professors bring their career experience to the conversation when teaching your classes. They help you with something you’re struggling to learn. They know your name.

    At IUP, academic programs and resources are plentiful and yours for the taking. Not sure what major you want? We can guide you to a major that works for you through our new University College. Know your major? There are hands-on opportunities you can take advantage of as early as your first year.

    Whatever your major, you can expand your horizons and your career options with internships and study-abroad opportunities, or you can set yourself apart by presenting at the Scholars Forum.

    And, there is help when you need it. Many students take advantage of the Academic Success Center, the Writing Center, the Career and Professional Development Center, and other resources.

    Come to IUP. Be ready to work hard, and we’ll help you reach your goals.
