Welcome to University College. Our mission is to provide individualized and interdisciplinary
educational opportunities to both traditional and nontraditional adult students. Since
its creation in 1975, the college has been an entry point for students, an innovator
of new programs, a catalyst for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary efforts throughout
the campus, and a facilitator for the community to interact with the University.
We seek to provide access to quality educational programs and services for a diverse
community of learners who seek change through increased knowledge and skill. As our
program is interdisciplinary in nature, it is designed to serve any traditional or
nontraditional student whose personal and career goals are not met by other degree
programs at the University of Memphis.
University College courses can be completed on campus, online, or a combination of
both in order to meet the flexible needs of your schedule. Areas of study include
21 concentrations in our bachelor’s degrees and 3 concentrations in our master’s degrees.
Degrees can also be customized to fit specific learning interests, and credit hours
may be earned through work experience and professional training.
Students pursuing a degree in University College will acquire the necessary knowledge
and skills to apply their coordinated area of study in a theoretical and practical
fashion; and effectively solve problems as part of a team or independently in classroom
and professional settings as well as mastering computer skills, effective writing
and communication practices.
We invite you to look through our website and learn how you can be involved as an
adult learner in one of the many programs in University College.
