Welcome and thank you for your interest in the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. UW-L offers over twenty graduate programs, from the hard sciences to the health professions, from business to education and the social sciences. We are proud of our innovation and the opportunities provided for close interaction with excellent faculty through coursework, research, independent studies, and practical experiences both on campus and in the community. Our focus is on the delivery of high quality experiences that prepare individuals for careers in their fields and for further education in an ever-changing global environment.

Each of the three colleges that comprise the university - the College of Business Administration, the College of Science and Health, and the College of Liberal Studies - offers graduate programs. Many of our courses and programs are offered on campus in traditional formats. In addition, we have a growing number of courses and degrees delivered to students off campus through both on-line courses and face-to-face courses delivered in communities across the State of Wisconsin.

Our graduate faculty members are committed to providing high quality, innovative, and challenging opportunities for your personal and professional growth and development. We offer a learning environment that places you at the leading edge of your field and prepares you for continued success. We look forward to you joining us as we learn, grow, and change together.

About this catalog

In compiling our catalog, we have used the most current and accurate information available to us at this time. However, we reserve the right to change any of the information in this catalog at any time and without giving prior notice. When the UW System or UW-L campus deletes or revises any of the information in this catalog, the changes take effect as soon as it is appropriate. At times, changes are applicable to all students regardless of which catalog they are following.

This catalog does not establish or constitute a contract between UW-La Crosse and its students. Instead, it provides descriptive and summary information outlining university rules, policies, regulations, course listings, and degree programs. It is important for students to become acquainted with UW-L requirements and regulations and to continue to keep informed about them while they are enrolled.

Courses listed in this catalog are subject to change through normal academic procedures. New programs and courses, and changes in existing course work are initiated by departments or programs and approved by the appropriate academic dean, the curriculum committees, and the faculty senate. Additions to the curriculum for the ensuing years are published in the official curriculum committee minutes which are on file with Faculty Senate and in the Office of Records and Registration.
