At UW-Platteville, you can choose to study the arts or theatre. Both areas offer small, focused classes that create the perfect environment to form connections with fellow student artists and receive one-to-one instruction from professors.

In the art program at UW-Platteville, you’ll grow your creative and critical thinking skills as you prepare for an art career in a fast-paced, global culture. Small, focused classes create the perfect environment to form connections with fellow student artists and receive one-to-one instruction from professors. Though the class sizes are small, the opportunities are big—from working side-by-side with experienced faculty and developing skills through critiques to participating in internships, exploring museums, and preparing for your own gallery exhibition. Explore your personal interests by choosing your emphasis area in art, art education, graphic design, or studio art. You’ll graduate with a well-defined, professional portfolio and a broad knowledge of art that prepares you for graduate school or a career as a professional artist, designer, production specialist, or other inspiring position.

In the UW-Platteville theatre program, you'll complete a rigorous academic program that teaches you about the practical side of theatre (stagecraft, acting, stage managing, directing, and design) as well as courses in history, literature, and theory. Studying theatre is an exciting but challenging pursuit. Theatre demands that you be a critical and independent thinker as well as skilled practitioner. We expect our students to leave UW-Platteville prepared for careers in the theatre or for further academic study in graduate school. A theatre or musical theatre minor makes a wonderful companion to a host of majors, including but not limited to English, education, music, communications, engineering, and criminal justice.
