As a large public research institution, the University of Cincinnati has so much to offer students.

With over 200 years of experience-based learning, where students go beyond the classroom and have meaningful internships, co-ops, and research relevant to their major, it's no wonder why UC is ranked as one of the top public universities in the United States by US News.
