Degree Programs at Wisconsin Public Universities

Wisconsin state universities offer students a wide number of academic majors and minors to help support a vibrant economic base. Students looking to study at a state college may be inclined to pursue a traditional degree or emerging area of concentration. Perennially popular degrees include teaching, biology, history, accounting, communications, engineering, and business. Meanwhile, regionally influenced degrees and emerging research have made the following niche programs popular: agronomy, hydrology, sustainability, solar energy, data modeling, robotics, cytotechnology, information technology, and computer engineering. Both paths can help you step into a targeted career or continue in academics to earn an adjacent degree. For example, students earning a degree in agriculture and earn a master’s degree in crop science just as an undergraduate degree in math can be parlayed into a graduate degree in computer science.
