There are nearly 150 programs of study, including business, computer science, chemistry, nursing, and performing arts.
Due to the size of the campus, 77 percent of classes have fewer than 30 students, and more than 47 percent of the classes have fewer than 20 students. Smaller classes provide a personalized, hands-on experience. SUU offers an on-campus English as a Second Language (ESL) program for international students. After completing the ESL program, many international students go on to become regular students of Southern Utah University.
