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 philosophy program offers both a major and minor, encompassing the whole history of philosophy rather than any particular philosophy. This intellectual discipline enables us to think more critically and develop genuine insights to some of life’s most fundamental questions. You’ll grow your critical-thinking skills and build an excellent foundation, whether starting your career after earning your degree or continuing your studies in graduate school.
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.
