University of Central Arkansas in Conway has some of Arkansas’ and even the nation’s most innovative programs.
One of its most innovative offerings is the Residential Colleges program. Students in the Residential Colleges program don’t only live in dorms together. They also take all of their classes together and engage in common social and extracurricular activities.
Residential Colleges are divided up according to a focus, or discipline. For example, one residential college is focused on living globally, another is dedicated to the arts and yet another revolves completely around the study of science, technology, engineering and math.
Residential Colleges are optional. Students who wish to study in a more traditional format may do so as well and have over 75 undergraduate and 40 graduate degrees from which to choose.
UCA is also innovative in its academic programs. UCA is, for example, the only school in the state to offer Occupational Therapy and programs such as Digital Filmmaking, Addiction Studies and African-American Studies.
UCA has numerous other programs as well including the largest Psychology, Speech-Language Pathology and Dietetics programs in the state of Arkansas. Other degrees may be chosen from such fields as in business, education, fine arts, health and behavioral science and liberal arts.
Student services are available, and numerous financial aid offerings may be discussed with a financial aid counselor.
