Graduate Programs

Applied Energy and Electromechanical Engineering (MS)

The M.S. in Applied Energy and Electromechanical Engineering (AEEE) degree provides an opportunity for discipline-specific and multidisciplinary graduate level education. Advanced coursework and research are used to enhance professional development, improve technical competency, and initiate a lifelong learning experience. Full-time students typically take three semesters to complete the program. The AEEE degree is a 30-hour Engineering program. (The program is in an approved STEM field that allows international graduates to apply for OPT extension).

Applied Linguistics (CERT)

Applied Linguistics studies the 'real-life' particulars of language such as how decisions are made based on language, how people self-identify or deal with one another through language, and how language works in specific contexts. The graduate certificate in Applied Linguistics prepares students for further studies in linguistics as well as careers in fields as diverse as intelligence, forensic document analysis, publishing/journalism, language and information technology, speech therapy, technical copy editing, lexicography and library science.

Applied Nursing Informatics (CERT)

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Nursing Informatics is designed for nurses who hold a BSN or graduate nursing degree and desire to enhance their skills in clinical application of nursing informatics. The course content is focused on implementing, managing, or conducting analytics using clinical/administrative information systems. The certificate program consists of four courses (12 credit hours) that can be taken over a calendar year. The courses toward the certificate can be taken concurrently with Nurse Administration and other M.S.N. curriculum. The certificate program is offered...

Architecture (MARC)

The Master of Architecture (MArch) program is a fully accredited National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB) degree program. It consists of three concentrations or tracks: MArch 1 (3-1/2 year, 96 credits), MArch 2 (2-year, 60 credits), and MArch A.S. (advanced standing 1-1/2 year, 40 credits). A MArch degree allows graduates to enter an internship program with the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB) after which they will be qualified to sit for the Architectural Registration Examination (ARE) to practice architecture in North America. The MArch I concentration...

Architecture (MS)

The M.Arch III and Master of Science in Computer Science or Master of Science in Information Technology dual degree program has become increasingly important to computer scientists and at the same time computation has become important to designers. This program is a unique curriculum that systematically combines the strength and insights of each discipline. As computing has matured as a discipline, it has expanded its focus to include the physical and virtual settings in which users interact with the machine. Specialties like human computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, gaming and...

Athletic Training (MSAT)

The mission of the Athletic Training Program at UNC Charlotte is to educate future athletic training professionals in the provision of high quality, culturally competent, evidence based care to improve health outcomes for physically active individuals and to advance healthcare understanding through research, scholarship and service. The Master of Science in Athletic Training program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) thru 2031-2032.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (CERT)

The graduate certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a non-licensure program designed for teachers and human service agency staff to acquire the skills and expertise to address the specific needs of individuals with ASD. This graduate certificate meets the Professional Content Standards of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and offers students the opportunity to pursue graduate-level education through the flexibility of online learning from UNC Charlotte faculty and ASD professionals.

Bioinformatics (MS)

The program Bioinformatics MS is an interdisciplinary program at the intersection of the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Statistics, Computing and Informatics and Engineering. The program is structured to provide students with the skills and knowledge to develop, evaluate and deploy bioinformatics and computational biology applications. It is designed to prepare students for employment in the biotechnology sector where the need for knowledgeable life scientists with quantitative and computational skills has exploded in the past decade.

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (Ph.D.)

The age of biological big data is upon us and there is a need for graduates at all levels who combine an understanding of biology with skills in programming, statistics and modeling. The Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology is an interdisciplinary program that provides students with the skills and knowledge to analyze large scale biological data and develop new computational strategies. BCB PhD graduates are employed worldwide in academia and industry. Key program application deadlines: Jan. 1 for Fall admission and Sept. 1 for Spring admission.

Bioinformatics: Technology (CERT)

The graduate certificate in Bioinformatics Technology is designed to train graduates who will bring interdisciplinary expertise in biological sciences and computing to bear on large-scale analysis problems in genomic biology. The fields of bioinformatics and computational biology provide methods to extract significance from high-throughput experimental results and develop models of complex biological systems. A recent study of the biotechnology community in the Charlotte metro area alone identified 700 companies, nearly one third of which will have need of bioinformatics professionals in the...
