University of Arkansas
The University of Arkansas is a public land-grant, doctoral research university. That 'students-first' philosophy is a big reason why the the University of Arkansas is consistently ranked among the nation's top public research universities and best values. We work hard to ensure a low student-to-faculty ratio that promotes plenty of personal attention and mentoring opportunities. The Carnegie Foundation classifies the university as having "the highest possible level of research," placing us among the top 2 percent of colleges and universities nationwide.
