About

From University of Wyoming

97,914 square miles. 600,000 people. One university producing graduates as varied as our topography. Welcome to Wyoming—a state that has poured its heart and soul into its singular doctoral-granting university.

UW is a proud land grant institution and as such embraces the imperative to create, disseminate and put knowledge to work. We are what Wyoming and the world needs us to be: an ag college, an engineering college, a college of law, business, education and the arts. We offer 90 graduate programs and conduct research on topics as diverse as obesity and renewable energy and attract tens of millions of dollars annually in external research funding. Graduate students have the opportunity to customize a plan of study and focus on the area of academics and research that serve their unique interests.

More importantly, we welcome the restless seekers and creators and individualists, who recognize that the winds of inspiration blow fiercely where ideas have room to roam.
