The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Department of Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts and Education offers Bachelor degrees in an array of majors and minors. Students in the humanities gain valuable experience from participation in exchanges with local and international schools, presentations at academic conferences, and professional organizations, as well as education-abroad programs.
The English program teaches proficiency in literary analysis, professional and creative writing, cultural analysis and creation, and the mastery of rhetorical devices. We partner with the Writing Center to find outstanding college writing essays for the yearly publication of Stylus: Anthology of College Writing. You can also receive recognition with a distinction for high achievement for your writing skills and gain professional experience by joining Sigma Tau Delta, the National English Honor Society.
The humanities prepare students for a variety of careers in business, government, freelancing environments, communication and publishing, teaching, or other employment sectors. Majoring in the humanities is also excellent preparation for law school and careers in student services, business, nonprofit organizations, and humanitarian sectors.
