“Prior to even completing my degree, I had multiple job offers. For a student, I can’t think of a better feeling in the world. This speaks directly to the professional respect that is given to the IUP program and the caliber of students who graduate from it.”
— justin little, m.s. in safety sciences 

“My experience at IUP was extremely positive. I found the relationships I built with both faculty and my cohort to be instrumental in shaping me to be the counselor that I am today.”
— tim donovan, m.ed. in school counseling 

“The instructor/student ratio was small and really enhanced my learning and provided close attention. The cohort structure provided additional support and camaraderie as we progressed through the program together. I would highly recommend IUP’s graduate program to others.”
— amy biddle, m.s. in nursing 

“The faculty are so willing to collaborate with us, and students work together. There’s no competition here. We are always learning from each other.”
— eliza albert, m.a. in literature, ph.d. in literature and criticism

Five locations and online
IUP reaches beyond Indiana, Pennsylvania. While over a thousand graduate students attend classes on our main campus each year, you can also decide to pursue your degree at one of four off-campus sites in the state: Monroeville (near Pittsburgh), Northpointe, Johnstown, and Harrisburg. Other students take advantage of the various online and hybrid (partially online) capabilities offered by programs designed specifically for working professionals, using technology like our “virtual classroom” experience.
