Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

UNCC is a very diverse and forward thinking environment. The professors are very well qualified and take a personal interest in the students. The technology is state of the art and the facilities are very impressive. As an older student starting a second career, it is very satisfying to see how diverse the campus is age, gender, and ethnicity.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

As an aspiring healthcare administrator, I believe UNC-C's MHA program is a great bang for the buck. The program itself is considered average, it recently ranked 8 spots according to US News and Report which clearly indicates that the program is in it's way to further improvement. Probably the major con is the gap between the local hospital systems and the program. I believe this may be due to UNC-C having not offering more clinical degrees and medical schooling. Other wise, UNC-C's MHA program is a great investment. Students do need to reach out for their own opportunities though to thrive, not just survive the MHA program.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The Mathematics Education program at UNCC has offered me the opportunity to further my career goals, developing my mathematical background as well as thoughts on the teaching of mathematics. I will graduate with greater knowledge of how students learn math and what teachers can do to better instruct their students. The professors have been very helpful and knowledgeable.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The campus is beautiful. Technology useful. Professors accessible and interested in research projects and the development of scholars. The Educational Leadership doctoral program is eager to obtain student feedback to enhance quality of the program. Upon graduation, I feel I will be prepared to meet the challenges of a 21st century leader.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm currently studying Accounting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The professors have been very hands on and the program does an excellent job of preparing you for the real world. While the commute of traveling to uptown Charlotte is tedious the experience has proven worthwhile.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty has been great and the course work is manageable. They make the dissertation process easier by breaking it down into small steps. I wish there were more online courses and offerings for time.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

UNC Charlotte is located in the University City area of Charlotte, so it gives you access to the amenities of Charlotte while being relatively affordable. The professors seem to actually care about your education and are really approachable. UNC Charlotte is up-to-date and the English PTW program is practical and useful. There are only three PTW faculty, which is both a pro and a con because you get to know them really well, but it limits the input you get. The majority of students commute in and most of the grad classes are at night so you can work during the day.
