ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS: Vary by program

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Rolling admission


For instance, UC graduate students have turned fryer fat into power plant fuel, used NASA data to track decades of climate change in the Artic, excavated a rare and rich Bronze Age warrior’s tomb dating back 35 centuries, and developed artificial intelligence able to beat tactical experts in US Air Force combat simulations.

In the process they’ve earned recognition within their disciplines as well as headlines in The New York Times, Forbes, BBC, The Washington Post, and many more, while contributing to the University’s heavyweight reputation when it comes to discoveries that make a difference. Other recent breakthroughs include a new method to depict and study stomach cancer, an achievement that earned the prestigious Albert J. Ryan Award given to a handful of graduate students from UC, Harvard, and Dartmouth. Not to mention an inventor and Chemical Engineering student who recently applied for a US patent on his unique “green” chemical synthesis—that on top of his eight journal articles either in print or under review in leading journals.

It’s opportunities like these that allow students to directly contribute to innovation while building meaningful portfolios and engaging with faculty and other thought leaders outside the classroom. All are part of endeavors that encompass science, medicine, business, education, engineering, technology, the humanities, and the arts. Specific and cross-disciplinary areas of focus include analytics, digital media, precision cancer medicine, water, and urban futures.

In these and other areas, UC is awarded hundreds of millions of dollars annually for its research efforts from governmental, industrial, and nonprofit sources. It’s also supported by local, state, national, and international entities as varied as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Energy, US EPA, National Endowment from the Humanities, National Endowment for the Arts, National Geographic Society, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, US Geological Society, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and many others. UC’s innovation, research, and academics are also supported by the University’s $1.1 billion endowment, which is among the top 75 in the US and Canada.

Students are also able to pursue entrepreneurial efforts with support from the UC Center for Entrepreneurship & Commercialization and the Entrepreneurship Bearcat Launchpad, the nation’s first student-led business accelerator.

Such opportunities in applied academics are housed on a cutting-edge campus, which The New York Times called the “most ambitious campus-design program in the country.” This academic setting, with its A+ architecture and state-of-the-art labs, has been intentionally designed to both arouse intellectual curiosity and prompt a healthy social culture. People thrive on UC’s campus because it’s a place where they can learn, problem solve, and collaborate.

The same is true within the Cincinnati regional economy, the fastest growing among major cities in the Midwest. Among the largest metro economies, Cincinnati is the 20th fastest-growing region in the United States. Cincinnati’s vibrant economy, low cost of living, and great amenities help companies and institutions retain current employees and recruit new ones. In fact, Cincinnati has more Fortune 500 companies per million residents than New York, Boston, Chicago, or Los Angeles.
