UNC Asheville — a quality education at a public school price
You’ll find UNC Asheville is one of the best-kept secrets in North Carolina education. But the college guides discovered us a long time ago, recognizing UNC Asheville as a great value among public liberal arts universities. Part of the renowned University of North Carolina system, UNC Asheville offers students a rigorous academic foundation usually found only in private schools — at less than the half the cost of private colleges.
Based on a strong core curriculum, we focus on cultivating students who can think through complex problems from different perspectives. To ensure personal attention and guidance, we intentionally keep our classes small and have assembled a faculty devoted to working with undergraduates. Students also gain practical experience through internships, independent study projects, community service and study abroad. This integrated approach equips students to succeed in today’s marketplace and take advantage of a lifetime of opportunities.
Of course, they also fall in love with our mountain location for the recreational and cultural opportunities that abound here. Check out all the other reasons why UNC Asheville is one of the best educational options in the country:
