Founded in 1875, IUP is a vibrant, comprehensive, research-based, teaching-focused, student-centered learning community. IUP combines the academic opportunities of a large university with the highly personalized and intimate learning-centered environment of a small college.
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. Students can also pursue a degree in a fully online format or a blended format.
