Our students participate in one-on-one research with renowned faculty and study abroad in more than 56 countries. They learn in small classes, led by professors passionate about the subjects they teach, and have access to internships with some of the world’s most famous companies. And best of all, our students have the academic support and career guidance needed to prepare for success after graduation. Founded in 1871 as a land-grant institution, the University of Arkansas is the flagship of the University of Arkansas System. Our 29,000 students represent all 50 states and more than 120 countries. The U of A has 10 colleges and schools offering more than 200 academic programs. Our picturesque campus is located in Fayetteville in the hilly northwest corner of Arkansas overlooking the Ozark Mountains. Some of the nation’s best outdoor resources and most spectacular hiking trails are within a short drive of campus. Fayetteville is routinely considered among the country’s finest college towns, and the surrounding Northwest Arkansas region is regularly ranked one of the best places to live in the U.S.
