Excerpt: The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, also known
as UNC Charlotte, is a public research university located in
Charlotte, North Carolina, United States. UNC Charlotte offers 19
doctoral, 62 master's, and 90 bachelor's degree programs through 9
colleges: the College of Arts + Architecture, the College of
Liberal Arts & Sciences, the Belk College of Business, the
College of Computing and Informatics, the College of Education, the
William States Lee College of Engineering, the College of Health
