Looking for something different out of your education? William Peace University offers its students more than just lectures and papers. We give them the hands-on experience they want.

WPU students become leaders in their field by working along side professors and professionals on relevant projects and internships. Our programs are dynamic and outcome-driven, meaning every minute of your college experience is another step toward your future.

We challenge students to think big and then give them the skills they need to accomplish their goals. Nowhere is this more evident than in our graduates: more than 90% of graduates are placed in a job or graduate school within a year of graduation.
