University Scholars students receive an outstanding education that can position them for success in any field. In lieu of traditional major requirements, UNSC students work with advisors and mentors in their chosen fields to craft an individualized degree plan and optimize their academic experience. This focused, discipline-specific study, known as a concentration, ensures the same level of preparation available in a traditional major. UNSC graduates are uniquely prepared for graduate school, medical school, law school, and careers across the spectrum.
