Coming back to UNCW

Ever thought about earning another degree from UNCW? Across the country there is an increase in grad student applications and UNCW is no exception. Many people say it's due to the economy and the hardships with finding a decent job right out of school. We believe that the fantastic programs offered to graduate students are having an impact on its appeal also. Take a look for yourself. 

UNCW offers a wide variety of graduate degrees to fit many interests including the nationally renowned M.F.A. in creative writing, the Ed.D. in educational leadership and administration and the Pd.D. in marine biology. Encompassing more than 30 Master's Degree Programs, 2 Doctoral Programs, and numerous Graduate Certificate Programs it's easy to see why many choose UNCW as their destination for a continuing their educational experience.

Would love to, but can't find the funds to cover a new degree? The Alumni Association offers two graduate student scholarships and there are other financial aid options from UNCW. The possibility may be closer than you think!

Wherever your journey is headed, we're glad that UNCW could be a part of it.

Homecoming 2010 Highlights

Where's your Seahawk Pride?
Teal was abundant in Wilmington during UNCW Homecoming 2010 during the end of January.  Seahawk Spirit was in full swing during events such as the Alumni TEALgate as well as the All Alumni Celebration. More than 1,000 alumni and friends joined the reunions, parties and activities for guests to enjoy during Homecoming week. 

The events are put on as a collaborative effort by many UNCW groups. Hosted by the Alumni Association, Homecoming events also include a Step Show and Dub Idol and other student events supported by ACE, as well as reunions from Transition Programs and various academic areas. This year, as well as in the past it has been scheduled during the Men's Basketball Season where fans can join eachother in Trask to cheer on our beloved Seahawks.

You can find more highlights and photos from the festivities on the Alumni Association's website and also on their Facebook page. It is safe to say that once a Seahawk always a Seahawk!
