The University Scholars Program provides opportunities for students to form lasting friendships through their living and learning communities on campus, their disciplines of study, and their interests outside the classroom.
The academic centerpiece of the University Scholars Program is the opportunity for students to craft a unique, individualized curriculum. UNSC students work closely with a faculty director to create a course of study tailored to the student’s particular academic and professional goals while retaining the full Liberal Arts experience.
