North Carolina State Flag

With a history of being a state of “firsts” — first American born, first flight, first Pepsi soft drink — it should come as no surprise that the University of North Carolina was one of the first public universities established in the country. In fact, the University of North Carolina (UNC) public school system is responsible for 75% of the state’s bachelor’s degrees. Perhaps the most well-known institution in the system is UNC – Chapel Hill, which has been highly ranked by U.S. News & World Report and currently offers 71 undergraduate programs, 107 master’s degree programs, and 74 doctoral degree programs. Many of these programs are also offered online. Another school in the UNC system with an extensive list of online degrees program is East Carolina University, which offers certificates as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees online.

Other accredited online colleges in North Carolina include Duke University, which offers online MBA and nursing degrees. North Carolina State University offers licenses and certificates online as well as degrees at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels. Methodist University is one of the many private universities also offering online degrees, and is one of the many faith-based with courses online. Additionally, several online community colleges in North Carolina offer state residents both certificates and degrees in a myriad of subjects and disciplines. Cape Fear Community College and Central Carolina Community College are two examples of community colleges offering online classes in North Carolina.
