School Details

The founding of the University of Arkansas in 1871 was one of the few achievements during the state's Reconstruction era that brought former political and military rivals together. Over the course of its history, the university has continued to bring the citizens of the state together by raising educational standards, improving business and economy, and giving Arkansans a hardy mascot around which to rally. Although the university established a medical college at Little Rock during the late 19th century, its real growth in academic programs on the Fayetteville campus didn't occur until the early 20th century. A college of agriculture was created in 1905. Soon after, university officials approved a broader restructuring to create the colleges of engineering, education, and arts and science.

Today, the University of Arkansas offers bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees and certificates from the following schools and colleges:

  • Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences
  • Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design
  • J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences
  • Sam M. Walton College of Business
  • College of Education and Health Professions
  • College of Engineering
  • Honors College
  • Graduate School and International Education
  • School of Law

Online programs at all levels are offered from the University of Arkansas’s Global Campus.
