Languages and Culture Studies: Translating (CERT)

Students in the certificate program study the history, theory, methodology, and profession of translation; work in the analysis and translation of different types of discourse, including non-literary and literary texts; become familiar with computer-assisted translation; and develop advanced post-editing skills. Graduate level coursework may also include special topics courses in translation and up to 3 credit hours of professional internship credit in translating. Translating is done in both directions of a given language pair: English ↔ French English ↔ German English ↔ Japanese English ↔ Russian English ↔ Spanish FUNDING New students admitted for Fall by the end of March and with a GPA of 3.0, may be nominated for the Graduate School Tuition Award ($2000). *******************************************************************************************************

Latin American Studies (MA)

The Master of Arts in Latin American Studies provides students with the skills and knowledge to understand and analyze the societies of Latin America and the Caribbean—a region of key importance in the age of globalization and mass migration. The program provides an excellent foundation for advanced graduate study in the humanities, social sciences, and law. It is also designed to prepare the growing number of students who seek careers in the foreign service and other government agencies as well as those who will seek employment in non-governmental organizations with an international or cross-cultural orientation or in international business. It also serves as an important qualification for individuals in education and the social services who work with the burgeoning Hispanic population of North Carolina.

Liberal Studies (MA)

The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies is an interdisciplinary program where students have the flexibility to design individualized curricula around broad intellectual interests and research focuses. Students can take graduate courses in a wide variety of academic departments and across colleges to further their studies related to their particular topic. Students complete a final capstone project to demonstrate their knowledge and mastery of their particular area of study.

Management of Information Technology (CERT)

The graduate certificate in Management of Information Technology provides professionals with an opportunity to advance their level of competence in the management and applications of computing and information technology through formal training. Coursework towards this graduate certificate can be used for credit towards the M.S. in Information Technology. However, its primary objective is to provide a well-defined target for students who want to advance their knowledge and skills in applying and managing information technology, but do not necessarily wish to complete all the requirements for the M.S. in Information Technology. What's new: The Fall 2021 application deadline for the Distance Education certificate has been extended to August 15th, 2021!

Mathematics (applied) (Ph.D.)

The Ph.D. degree program in Applied Mathematics is designed to enable students to master a significant body of mathematics, including a specialty in applied mathematics; relate this knowledge to a coherent area of science or engineering; and to carry on fundamental research in applied mathematics at a nationally competitive level. Recipients of this degree will, according to their abilities and choice of sub-specialty, be able to work effectively in a research and development environment involving mathematical or statistical analysis and modeling in business, government or industry; teach mathematics at the college or university level; or carry on fundamental research in their area of specialty.

Mathematics (MS)

Mathematics: Applied, General, Applied Statistics, and Mathematics Education concentrations.The Master of Science in Mathematics is organized into four concentrations: General Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Applied Statistics, and Mathematics Education. The Concentration in General Mathematics is a robust but flexible program that allows a student to develop a broad background in Mathematics ranging over a variety of courses chosen from both pure and applied areas, or to tailor a program toward a particular focus that may not be as closely covered by the department's other degree concentrations (e.g., one that is interdisciplinary in nature). The Concentration in Applied Mathematics develops analytical and computational skills focused toward applications of mathematics in the physical sciences as encountered in industry, government, and academia. The Concentration in Applied Statistics provides theoretical understanding of, and training in, statistical analysis and methods applicable to particular areas of business, industry, government, and academia. The Concentration in Mathematics Education is designed primarily for secondary school mathematics teachers interested in professional growth in mathematics teaching. Emphasis in this program is given to developing depth and breadth in mathematics teaching and learning, appropriate to the role of the secondary school teacher.

Mechanical Engineering (MSME)

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering is broad based, allowing students to develop expertise in a number of areas including metrology, precision engineering, bioengineering, motorsports and automotive engineering, energy engineering, manufacturing, thermal and fluid sciences, solid mechanics, instrument design, materials engineering and science, and mechanical control and instrumentation.

Nanoscale Science (Ph.D.)

The Nanoscale Science Ph.D. is an interdisciplinary program that addresses the development, manipulation, and use of materials and devices on the scale of roughly 1-100 nanometers in length, and the study of phenomena that occur on this size scale. The program prepares students to become scholarly, practicing scientists who possess the critical thinking, methodological, and communication skills required to advance and disseminate knowledge of fundamental and applied nanoscale science.

Network Security (CERT)

The Graduate Certificate in Network Security provides professionals with an opportunity to advance their knowledge and skills in cyber security for networked systems. The certificate requires fifteen (15) graduate credit hours of coursework. The certificate may be pursued concurrently with a related graduate degree program at UNC Charlotte. What's new: The Fall 2021 application deadline for the Distance Education certificate has been extended to August 15th, 2021!
