The University of Tampa (UT), is a private, co-educational university in Downtown Tampa, Florida
Beginning in 2007, the University was re-organized into four colleges: the College of Natural and Health Sciences; the College of Math, Education, and Social Sciences; the College of Business; and the College of Arts & Letters. As of 2006, the graduate school had a separate dean and budget, allowing it to operate independently from the more undergraduate-focused programs.
Some of UT’s most popular majors include communication, biology, international business, management, criminology and nursing.
UT offers a journalism major and minor. The student-run newspaper, The Minaret, has won back-to-back awards as “Florida’s Top College Paper”. Writers have won numerous awards from the Florida College Press Association. The Minaret was also named a finalist in the Associated Collegiate Press Pacemaker awards, marking the student paper as one of the top 25 weekly college newspapers in the country.
