Academics

Whether students come here undecided or with a major in mind, Carolina opens the door to a universe of knowledge.

Some try a little of everything. Carolina offers classes abroad, on campus or online. Whatever path our students may choose, the academic experience at Carolina prepares them to make a difference in the world.

UNC’s two-year, pan-campus theme, “Water In Our World” calls for the University and all of its members and resources to mobilize around a common issue facing our society, which in this case is water.
