From the Director’s Desk – Bachelor’s Degrees at All Four Campuses

Over the last two years, UW-Green Bay has grown not only in enrollment but also as a regional foot-print in Wisconsin. As a regional comprehensive university, we’re committed to the mission of serving the communities in which we reside. Since the announcement of our reimagined four-location university, leadership at UW-Green Bay has had the opportunity to partner with the Marinette, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan communities to assess the industry needs that can be met by additional options and offerings from UW-Green Bay.

From these discussions emerged a set of majors that the newest UW-Green Bay campuses can provide – right now. These degrees represent just the beginning of bachelor’s degree offerings at the additional locations. Our goal is to be responsive; as the needs of our communities change or grow, so will the degree offerings.

The core bachelor’s degree programs now offered at the additional campuses are Business, Psychology, Health Information Management & Technology, and Writing and Applied Arts (BFA). These majors were seen as essential for all campuses to offer. Additionally, the university has added degrees specific to the needs and resources of each region. For example, while Sheboygan and Marinette need engineers (mechanical and electrical respectively), the Manitowoc campus includes lake access that allows for a career path in Environmental Science.

Offering these bachelor’s degrees across our locations excites me. First, as a four-campus university, we’ve created a large reach of staff, faculty, and community partners to set our students up for success, no matter what stage of life they may be in. Secondly, we have the resources to educate communities on the opportunities that lay in their backyards! Sometimes when we have lots of options it’s hard to know which pathway is best. Our team of recruiters, counselors, and advisors is ready, equipped, and waiting to help you find your path at UW-Green Bay.

Tell us what you want to work towards, and we’ll help you get there.
