Student advancement through each program provides opportunities for development of lasting friendships and support networks.  Marketability of graduates is increased through preceptorship and externship experiences which are part of the curriculum in each undergraduate program.  The College of Nursing was founded in 1971 and has produced over 3,000 graduates who have successfully moved into the nursing workforce in Mississippi and in other parts of the United States and world.

The College also offers two distinguished Speech-Language Pathology programs leading to a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree.  The undergraduate program is among the most academically rigorous on campus and has a notable reputation for preparing quality graduates with a solid foundation for graduate school.  The graduate program has a distinguished reputation and prepares students for employment in any professional setting.  Students participate in “hands-on” learning through clinical experiences in the MUW Speech and Hearing Center, public schools, hospitals, and long-term care facilities.  Graduate students are provided the opportunity to be involved in cooperative faculty-student research studies with presentations at state and national professional conferences.

Excellent faculty, personalized attention, and a commitment to excellence have contributed to the distinguished reputation of all programs within the College.  Please take time to look through our website to learn more about our undergraduate and graduate programs as well as the other opportunities available at The W.
