Welcome to the Graduate Bulletin of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The Bulletin serves as the student’s contract with the University and provides guidance relating to policies, procedures, and deadlines regarding graduate study. The Bulletin also provides descriptions of our post baccalaureate and graduate certificates, master’s degrees, and doctoral degree programs. Included are course descriptions, degree requirements, and other regulations. The Bulletin is provided in an electronic format that allows students and advisors to use key words to quickly and easily search and find the exact sections that pertain to questions at hand.

UNCG has a graduate enrollment of over 3,100 students. The University has grown over the years and there are now more than 50 certificate, 55 masters, 26 doctoral, and 2 education specialist programs available to students. In addition to being directly admitted into our degree programs, some students prefer to experience graduate education by taking courses as non-degree students through the VISIONS or Bryan Prelude programs. Other students begin their studies in certificate programs and later work to complete a master’s degree.

The University is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a doctoral granting institution with higher research activity. UNCG is also among a small group of universities that has earned the community engagement classification. The combination of these two designations is unique and affords students the benefits of research, outstanding faculty, and engagement with the community. Faculty bring the results of their research and community work into the classroom to make their teaching relevant to today’s problems. This multi-dimensional approach results in quality teaching that is supported through discovery of new knowledge and cooperative work with the community.

Please view this Graduate Bulletin as one of many resources available to you. If you have unanswered questions or want to explore further, please do not hesitate to visit The Graduate School or call our office at (336) 334-5596.
