In 1865, Shaw University in Raleigh, North Carolina, was founded on this date. Shaw was the first Historically Black College and University (HBCU) founded in the South.
Shaw, a private, coeducational institution, offers associate and bachelor's degrees in various fields (22 majors). It has courses of study in the liberal arts, the arts and sciences, business administration and management, communications, computer science, law, education, physical education, engineering, theological studies, public administration, and one master's degree program in divinity.
Its Center for Alternative Programs of Education (CAPE) allows students in nine cities across North Carolina to pursue an academic degree through flexible course scheduling, independent study, and credit for prior learning experiences. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools accredits Shaw University.
