AT A GLANCE

Highly Ranked Programs
Twenty-four of Iowa’s graduate and professional degree programs are ranked among the top 25 in the nation (U.S. News & World Report, 2016), including 10 in the top 10.

Combined-Degree Programs
Iowa offers combined-degree programs enabling students to earn two advanced degrees simultaneously. Undergraduate-to-graduate (U2G) programs are also an important part of the UI landscape. These programs provide students with the opportunity to complete two degrees, a bachelor’s and a master’s, in five years instead of six.

Teaching and Research Opportunities
Assistantships are a great way to offset your college expenses while gaining access to teaching and research opportunities. The Center for Teaching exists to support excellence in teaching and learning through institutes, workshops, programs, and one-on-one consultation. The Center offers support and resources for any instructor, administrator, or staff member involved in teaching and learning at the University of Iowa.

Professional Development Offerings
Iowa takes a holistic approach to graduate student and postdoctoral scholar preparation. Whether your goal is a career in academe, industry, government, or elsewhere, comprehensive training makes you marketable to employers. Iowa students explore careers, communication, diversity, fellowships, leadership, research and publication, teaching, and wellness.

Generous Funding Packages
Grants and fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and do not generally require repayment. They can be used for a wide range of purposes, including travel, research, experiments, field work, or dissertation writing. The Graduate College offers a number of competitive fellowships, funding consultations, and grant-writing support to assist graduate students in funding their graduate education. 

A Great College Town
The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, Iowa, a town of about 62,000 people nestled in a metropolitan area of about 250,000. Iowa’s campus is beautiful, pedestrian-friendly, and right next to Iowa City’s student-oriented downtown. Iowa City ranks among the nation’s best college towns in countless surveys and studies based on quality of life, cost of living, and earning potential for young professionals. The community features excellent restaurants, eclectic book stores, and abundant live performance venues.


Iowa offers over 150 graduate degree programs from 10 different colleges, which span the Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Health Sciences, Engineering, Education, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, and Business.

Graduate students at UI conduct groundbreaking research in a vibrant and innovative environment. Internationally renowned, the University of Iowa is committed to excellence in both knowledge and practice as it prepares graduates for a lifetime of success.

The University of Iowa leads the nation’s public institutions in high-quality dissertations. With five winners and 12 finalists in the Council of Graduate Schools CGS/UMI Distinguished Dissertation Award competition, Iowa has been recognized more times than any other public university.

The UI campus has recently undergone historic renovations and features newly constructed, state-of-the-art facilities, including the School of Music, School of Art and Art History, Visual Arts, Hancher Auditorium, Pappajohn Biomedical Discovery building, athletic facilities, and more.
