University of New Orleans
New Orleans is one of the world’s most fascinating and unique cities, and the University of New Orleans is a key attribute in its personality. No other city offers the same extraordinary mix of history, culture, and innovation, and no other institution offers the same exciting opportunities to learn and work. Our hallmark programs draw upon the University’s historical strengths and location to deliver an unparalleled experience.
Your UNO education will not be defined by the classroom walls. Our faculty and students are connected to their fields of expertise in both scholarship and in application; you’ll get your hands dirty learning here. Whether you perform at a local jazz club or apply your knowledge of naval architecture to a local ship building operation, you’ll put what you’ve learned into action long before you graduate.
The UNO campus is just minutes from the French Quarter, yet our reach is global. With international programs, students from ninety countries, and cooperative research with scholars from around the world, the University of New Orleans transcends borders. Our community is limitless!
