Colleges in Iowa

Iowa is known as the Corn State because much of Iowa’s land is agricultural. Many innovative agriculture degree programs are offered at top colleges and universities in the state, including at Iowa State University, the oldest land-grant university in the U.S. Only a few of the many four-year, degree-granting institutions in Iowa are publicly funded; the rest are a mix of private midsize universities and small colleges. Top colleges are located throughout Iowa and in the cities of Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Sioux City, Iowa City, Davenport and the state capital, Des Moines.
