At UWG, curiosity knows no limits
Welcome to one of the most dynamic universities in the nation
Since 1906, UWG has been home to those who are eager to take their own path, learn, and grow. With more than 12,700 students and 85+ programs, we’ve come a long way since then. Today, we’re a regional powerhouse with locations in Carrollton, Douglasville, and Newnan, Georgia, making a difference in the lives of our students, our neighbors, and the world. The one thing that’s never changed: Amazing things happen when you Go West.
Great minds aren’t meant to be left on autopilot. When you Go West, you’re making the choice to leave the predictable behind. That’s how you make history. And at UWG, we’re all about new and improved ways to do just about anything.
UWG is the second home to an entire new generation of thought leaders, trendsetters, and go-getters who are bold enough to follow their interests and discover greatness through research, study abroad, internships, and leadership opportunities. At UWG, we help connect you with what you need to pursue your passions and cultivate your curiosity.
