Why University of Charleston?

Why UC 

Our classes are geared to do two things: engage you in active learning and let you grow as a person. What makes that different? Our education is outcomes — focused — meaning every class is an exercise in understanding how the coursework relates to the real world.

What really sets UC apart is that you will leave here understanding how to make learning mean something real, tangible, useful — and then you will apply that learning to your life, for the rest of your life.
