Career Development

Global Programs

The global programs at UNW helps students find opportunities to learn, serve, and grow domestically and around the world. They will meet with students to find a program that fits their academic and career goals. Study abroad is a great way for students to get out of their comfort zone and still work towards their degree.

Honors Program

The Honors Program pushes students to go deeper not only in their academic and intellectual strength but also in their faith. Students are able to learn with like minded students and work one-on-one with a professor or mentor. Along with all these benefits accepted students are also eligible for the eagle scholars honors scholarship.
