Recognized with more Regents Teaching Excellence Awards than any other UW institution, the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s College of Letters and Science offers outstanding programs in the sciences, fine and performing arts, humanities and social sciences. L&S students are challenged by a nationally-recognized faculty committed to excellence in teaching, research and service.
Promoting a broad-based, liberal education for all of its students, the College of Letters and Science hosts the University Studies Program, UW Oshkosh’s one-of-a-kind program of general education, which provides students with broad knowledge of the wider world while helping them develop strong and transferable intellectual and practical skills to prepare for the challenges of work and for a meaningful and satisfying life.
The largest college on campus, Letters and Science also offers more than 40 undergraduate majors, numerous minors, as well as emphases, certificates, pre-professional programs and graduate programs. Both undergraduate and graduate students have the opportunity to participate in collaborative student-faculty research, internships, community engagement projects, study abroad programs, and many other high-impact learning experiences.
To empower and prepare students for engaged citizenship, Letters and Science also participates an innovative campus-wide Global Scholar and a forthcoming Diversity Scholar program to develop students’ sense of social responsibility and ability to navigate an increasingly complex, diverse and interdependent world.
The Undergraduate Advising and Resource Center (UARC) is comprised of professional advisors who serve as a resource to students, whether they are choosing a major, signing up for classes, reading a STAR (degree audit), and more.
Each academic department has faculty members that advise students within their chosen academic field. If you are a student who has an assigned faculty advisor, plan to meet with him/her first before asking for assistance from the UARC.
