Southern Arizona is a unique and varied region. While mostly rural, it contains Tucson, the State’s second largest metropolitan area as well as emerging, economically critical communities in Douglas, Sierra Vista, Nogales and Yuma. The region is prominent globally given the cultural, political and economic diversity that comes with an international border between Arizona and Mexico nearly 400 miles in length.
UA South—the University of Arizona’s branch campus headquartered in Sierra Vista—extends the University’s educational mission to the region’s people, in multiple locations and with targeted degree programs. UA South provides affordable, accessible opportunities to earn high-quality and meaningful University of Arizona degrees in sites throughout Southern Arizona, including key border communities in Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties. We partner with community colleges to offer bachelor degrees that are of high quality, low cost, and geographically accessible. In addition to traditional degree programs in education, computer science, humanities and the social sciences, UA South offers Bachelor of Applied Science programs, Master’s programs in education, and a variety of continuing education programs designed to meet the workforce needs of regional industry.
The University of Arizona will continue to increase access to degree programs that are relevant to students and to the communities in which they live. Meeting this need is at the core of UA South’s mission throughout Southern Arizona, and in particular in Cochise, Santa Cruz and Southeastern Pima Counties. We aim to renew continually our commitment to collaborate with the region’s school districts and community colleges, to innovate using technology, to enhance student learning and program availability, and to provide timely educational opportunities that are affordable, relevant, of the quality that is the hallmark of a University of Arizona degree.
Look at what UA South has to offer—on our web site, on Facebook and on Twitter. New programs are being developed and launched, the faculty is engaged in the growth and enrichment of our communities, and our graduates are making a difference. I invite students, educators, employers, and community members to join us as we work to help make Southern Arizona a great place to learn, work and live.
