Learn More About the Graduate School

UNCW is a nationally ranked research university and is among the top-ranked public universities in the South yet maintains a sense of community found in smaller colleges.

Continuing and Lifelong Education

At UNCW we ensure all students have an opportunity to learn. Outside of our degree programs we offer continuing education including CEUs, test prep, career training and the opportunity to just be a curious life-long learner.

Professional Development Opportunity

The Office of Student Involvement and Leadership is offering two Emotionally Intelligent Leadership workshops this fall specifically for grad students. The first workshop, Inspiring & Coaching Others, will take place on Thursday, Sept. 28th at 6:30 pm and will be in a hybrid format (in person and Zoom attendance options).
