Indiana University-Southeast is one of eight IU campuses, located in New Albany of Floyd County in the Louisville metro area. Originally founded in 1941 as a satellite location for beginning students to adapt to the rigors of college life while remaining near home, IU-Southeast evolved into a full-fledged campus by 1968 and today has over 6,000 students attending classes annually.

Indiana University-Southeast receives its accreditation from the North Central Association of Colleges and School’s Higher Learning Commission, an organization serving over 1,000 institutions which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Five criteria are judged by the NCA before awarding accreditation: Mission and Integrity; Preparing for the Future; Student Learning and Effective Teaching; Acquisition, Discovery and the Application of Knowledge; and Engagement and Service.

IU-Southeast offers over 50 degree programs, with bachelor, graduate and associate degrees all available. The School of Arts and Letters offers majors in Communications, English, Philosophy, Fine Art and Modern Languages. The School of Business offers degrees in Accounting, Finance, Economics and Marketing. The School of Natural Science has programs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, among others. Students applying to the School of Social Sciences can pursue degrees in Criminal Justice, History, Journalism, Psychology and Sociology. The School of Education has offerings in Elementary, Secondary and Special Ed to round out the list. Continuing Education is also a possibility with degree and non-degree courses.

Master’s degrees in Business Administration (MBA), Strategic Finance (MS), Liberal Studies (MA) and Education are available in the graduate departments.
