As of 2019, the university enrolls 45,217 students in 19 separate colleges/schools, including the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson and Phoenix and the James E. Rogers College of Law. The students can choose from the 300+ undergraduate majors and graduate programmes offered by UA, along with applied learning opportunities.
