Discover the University of Northern Iowa, faculties, courses and studies

P Established in Cedar Falls, the university is among the leading institutions in the area. In fact, close to 90% of all students are from Iowa. It provides more than 90 majors in multiple fields, from business and education to arts, social and behavioral sciences.

The University of Northern Iowa came to life after two different institutions decided to go together. During the 19th century, Iowa needed two things – a place to care for war veterans' orphans, as well as a superior learning institution. Both of them came to life. By 1876, the necessity of an orphan care home was no longer there, so legislators started the Iowa State Normal School – the original university.

Back then, the school was relatively basic. It had a few buildings and just a few classes here and there. Facilities were also basic. Overtime, it kept evolving to what it is today. A fire destroyed parts of the central hall in the 1960s, but donations helped the university recover. It received its current name – University of Northern Iowa – in 1967, after having three former names in its early years.

Academics at the University of Northern Iowa are quite diversified. Students can get around 90 majors, so there is something for everyone out there. Most commonly, students opt for business, education, sciences, arts and humanities. There is also a graduate college on site.
