    There are 86 thousand, 400 seconds in a day. 86 thousand, 400 opportunities to seek wisdom...to create...to stretch for your goals. And within every moment is the chance to discover your talents and abilities. A University of Charleston degree is a measure of your discovery...your success...your innovation. Make every moment count.

    How so? For starters, no long list of required courses. We’ve done away with the “core” curriculum and put the basics like writing, science and ethics into each major – so rather than learning them in the abstract, you’ll learn them in the context of your future career. Add to that the opportunity to earn your bachelor's degree in less than four years, the opportunity to accelerate directly into a graduate program, and the ability to customize your education to match your own strengths and interests.

    And if you believe our opportunities match your goals, we welcome your Application for Admission. We pride ourselves on meeting the needs of our students. And that attitude starts the moment you submit your application for admission.
