While You’re Here


At UNC, research isn’t just a graduate school experience. It’s a big part of an undergraduate education. Receiving $17.5 million in external funding over the past three years, UNC’s faculty and students study, explore and grow through horizon-expanding research. Undergraduate students also deepen learning through internships, student teaching, fieldwork, student mentoring and clinical placement programs.


UNC's Honors Program includes two programs to allow students to explore their academic interests through the classroom and with a faculty mentor. The Honors Interdisciplinary Program offers courses designed for students in any major to incorporate into their studies. The Upper Division Honors Program pairs students with a faculty mentor to complete an in-depth research, applied or creative project.

"All great places have people, ideas and cultures that feed into it. Being a first-generation graduate (high school and college) and Mexican immigrant has allowed me to connect with the community in a great way."
