About Us

Greetings from the UA Graduate School.

As you explore our website, you will see firsthand the many ways in which we support our graduate students’ research and professional goals.

UA’s faculty are dedicated mentors whose work shapes the paths of their graduate students across many disciplines. Over 80% of our faculty hold terminal degrees, and many have won national awards, in fields ranging from nanoscience and engineering to biological sciences. Our Carnegie Research 1 classification for “very high research activity” places us among the nation’s top innovators in fields such as STEM, business, healthcare, social work and communications.

Our research centers and institutes, sophisticated research facilities, entrepreneurship incubator and exciting engineering discoveries are only the few of the areas of excellence that draw top faculty and graduate students to UA.
