Arkansas State University - Main Campus

State University, AR

Brief Description

Jonesboro is the proud home of Arkansas State University. The population of about 68,000 is largely made up of devoted fans of the Red Wolves. Arkansas State's more than 13,000 students add a vibrant, enlivening aspect to the community. The result is a thriving city where something is always happening.

The original Arkansas State was founded in 1909. Its main focus was agricultural science, but that focus has diversified to include 11 colleges. In addition to undergraduate degrees, Arkansas State's main campus also grants degrees at the graduate and doctoral level.

Arkansas State has long prided itself on its ability to bring students into contact with the latest technological developments. The 21st century brought with it the new Arkansas Biosciences Institute. This cutting-edge research facility devotes its study toward improving the lives of the state's citizens through medical and agricultural research. As a result, many students choose to study at Arkansas State in one of the many science based degree programs.

Agricultural science remains a keystone for this institution. However, students may also major in many other study areas like business administration, education, counseling, mechanical engineering and political science. Arkansas State's College of Nursing and Health Professions is particularly well regarded thanks to its excellent faculty and access to state-of-the-art technology. Graduate level degrees are similarly varied, with programs in environmental sciences, communication and business being particularly popular.

Arkansas State University offers plenty of learning opportunities for students of every description. Most students choose to learn on campus with a regular weekday schedule. However, options exist for students hoping to learn online or to take evening and weekend classes.

This fully accredited public university is about one hour away from Memphis and two hours from Little Rock. Between the attractions in Jonesboro and the proximity of other metropolitan areas, Arkansas State students have plenty of opportunities for fun and excitement. Moreover, the advantageous location makes it easy to find promising post-graduation job opportunities.
