A greater value in a world of change
The College of Liberal Arts and Education at University of Wisconsin-Platteville cultivates in you both knowledge and an awareness of the complexities of nature and human culture. At the same time, liberal studies provide the intellectual skills needed to assure flexibility and a capacity for self-education. Such abilities have an increasingly greater value in a world where change is constant, where no career or profession remains static, and where most people will make several major vocational changes in their lifetimes.
One of our students says it all:
"My time at UW-Platteville was instrumental in attaining my current position. Through my studies in history, I learned critical thinking skills, polished my writing, and learned how to effectively research and present that information to others. Without these skills and the broad scope of historical knowledge I gained at UW-Platteville, it would have been an uphill fight to get where I am today."
