About University of Arizona

Universities are defined by their people, and you could say the people here were born to challenge “business as usual.” The University of Arizona existed before Arizona was a state. Our first graduating class in 1895 consisted of two women and one male.

Since then, we’ve learned that we’re better together. We do more when we work across backgrounds, skills and perspectives. That’s how we’ve become long-time partners with NASA, leaders in both the arts and sciences, and able to prepare students to succeed in a world where most of the jobs today’s kindergartners will have don’t even exist yet. We know how to converge.

Purpose

Working together to expand human potential, explore new horizons and enrich life for all.

Mission

We will continuously improve how we educate and innovate so we can lead the way in developing disruptive problem-solvers capable of tackling our greatest challenges.

Vision

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
