As a UW resource that has been based in Wausau for 90 years, some folks might view the Wausau Campus as simply a place to start a higher education journey. Yes, the campus remains a great place to start, but it is much more than that today.
For example, did you know students here can obtain five different four-year bachelor’s degrees without leaving the Wausau Campus? Consider these examples:
Business Administration — Business students can gain in-demand skills and transition seamlessly while growing through business programs at the associate, bachelor's and even master’s level — all without leaving the Wausau Campus if they prefer! In addition to building new skills, business students here can get professional development experiences and access to area employers.
Engineering — Students now have the opportunity to earn a UW-Platteville industrial and systems engineering degree through the UW-Platteville Engineering Partnership Program. This is the first partnership that offers a degree in industrial and systems engineering. UWSP at Wausau already offered degrees in electrical and mechanical engineering through UW-Platteville. Core classes are taught by UW-Stevens Point at Wausau faculty and upper-level classes are streamed from UW-Platteville.
Nursing — Wausau Campus students can enroll in a Wausau-based partnership program to obtain a 4-year nursing collaborative degree. Students entering the program can experience the traditional college opportunities here while also taking advantage of the nationally accredited expertise of UWSP and partner programs.
Social Work — Social work students are prepared to serve individuals, families, groups and communities in a range of settings. The program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and graduates are eligible for Wisconsin state certification in a program that is fully available to students on both the Wausau and Stevens Point campuses.
Sociology — Sociology students prepare for careers in community and human service, law enforcement and criminal justice and a wide range of other disciplines. The sociology degree is offered at both the Wausau and Stevens Point campuses.
So, next time you are asked to support the Wausau Campus, just remember your support can go a long way to help a variety of community resources that are bigger and better than ever before!
