Colleges and Departments

Programs at IUP are offered through eight distinct colleges and schools.

Each focuses on a particular field of study, and each offers students the courses, resources, and high-quality instruction they'll need to succeed beyond the walls of IUP.

College of Arts and Humanities

Students are prepared to embark on their careers as thoughtful, highly educated members of society, as they are challenged to explore global perspectives and to consider their responsibilities in a changing, demanding world. With a solid foundation of the history, terminology, and methodology of each discipline, students are able to fully explore, express, and develop their unique creative talent.
