About UWG Students

The University of West Georgia is proud to have some of the state's most vibrant, intelligent and promising students. Everywhere you look, UWG students and alumni are blazing trails to new possibilities for scholarly achievement, creative expression, and service to humanity.

UWG students are performing biomedical research, outranking private university debate teams, studying trees to evaluate historical sites, and submitting winning t-shirt designs for the Peachtree Road Race. They are studying overseas, developing local outreach programs, and building robots. Our alumni are newscasters, authors, international business leaders and teachers of the year. They’re Hollywood makeup artists, entrepreneurs, critical care nurses, and everything in between.

Degrees Offered:

Through our team of department liaisons, we can help connect your business with UWG’s six schools and colleges: Arts & Humanities, Business, Education, Nursing, Science & Math, and Social Sciences. UWG offers 97 major opportunities in a wide range of disciplines and we have programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level. We also offer post-graduate certificates and specialist degrees. Let us help you find your next superstar employee by promoting your position within a complimentary academic program.
