Applications now accepted for bachelor’s program at UW-Richland

Earn your Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences

People at the University of Wisconsin-Richland have heard many times over many years from students who’ve said, “I wish I could stay at UW-Richland and earn my bachelor’s degree.”

Now, they can.

Applications are currently being accepted for the Bachelor of Arts & Sciences (BAAS) degree offered through the University of Wisconsin-Richland. It’s possible to begin as soon as this summer and now is the time for those who’d prefer to start in the fall to make their arrangements.

The BAAS degree includes a strong component of community involvement and practical experience and is heavily weighted toward skills that employers want, such as good reading and writing skills, the ability to work in teams, good math skills, the ability to assimilate information and solve complex problems, and awareness of global cultures and issues. The degree can be individually tailored to meet a student’s career interest.

The BAAS includes a professional experience component, including internships and service learning experiences in area communities. Options include face-to-face and distance learning. The BAAS was created with adult learners in mind, with an eye to making it possible for them to remain at a current job while advancing their education.

This new degree is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and financial aid options are available.

Student Affairs advisor Joanna Muller is eager to meet with people who would like to know more about the BAAS. To make an appointment with her, email or call the campus at (608) 647-6186, Extension 228. To find out more on the web, go to, and follow the links from “Academics.”
