Asheville’s University

UNC Asheville offers an education that is adaptive, affordable, and endlessly relevant as the only liberal arts and sciences campus in the University of North Carolina System. Our small class size, award-winning faculty and a nationally acclaimed undergraduate research program foster connections between curiosity and critical thinking, courage and challenge, imagination and impact, opportunity and responsibility.

Learning here expands well beyond the classroom walls. Focusing on undergraduate studies, we help students dig into learning, whether they participate in faculty-mentored research projects, undertake career-related internships, study abroad, or join service projects that make a profound impact at home and around the world. About 3,600 undergraduate students and about 330 full- and part-time faculty bring the campus alive with a genuine hunger to take on new challenges and opportunities through the more than 30 majors offered.

Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains in one of America’s great small cities, Asheville, North Carolina, UNC Asheville offers an experience where every path leads to a new vista, where there’s room for every voice, and where the future is a frontier.
