Welcome to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington! This small, family like community gives you a feeling of home. And us Seahawks welcome you to Wilmington. Because we are located near the beach, we attract laid-back and ambitious students, faculty and staff who work hard in and out of the classroom. Our priority is providing students real-life experiences, so students can work in the field and out in the community. And you can get the experience in a variety of majors and programs. The Film Studies department is known for the educational opportunities it provides to the students. You can create art and study all of the different components that go into film studies to prepare you for the industry. And our Watson College of Education is dedicated to high quality education and partnership with educators in the community. No matter what your passions are, UNCW is committed to providing you the best immersive education experience. Outside of the classroom, Seahawks relax and enjoy their time on campus and out in the community. Playing sand volleyball, hanging out in the student union, or testing out your climbing skills, there’s plenty of time to have a good time with other Seahawks. There are opportunities to enjoy both your time on campus and pursue whatever you want. Join the Seahawk family and achieve your dreams.
