Dean's Message


Welcome to UW-Waukesha. I invite you to browse our website or visit our campus to learn more about what we have to offer. We offer the best of two academic worlds with small classes and dedicated faculty that you would expect at a private college, along with access to the resources of a world-class university system.
Here you can pursue an Associate of Arts and Sciences degree while building a strong academic foundation for continuing your undergraduate work at a four-year institution. Now, you can also complete a Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences degree. Our rigorous curriculum of liberal studies and pre-professional courses prepares you for further study or for entry/ reentry into the workforce. Our graduates compete well with their peers and they are working in rewarding careers throughout the state and the nation.

At UW-Waukesha, there's much life beyond the classroom too! Here students can learn leadership skills and get involved with athletics, student government, numerous student clubs, music and theatre. Additional opportunities include the annual Student Research Symposium, Lecture and Fine Arts Series and Continuing Education offerings.
Whether you just graduated from high school or are a returning adult student, UW-Waukesha provides you with an affordable, high quality education in a supportive environment. We invite you to visit our campus and find out why UW-Waukesha is the best start for the life you want!
