Maybe you’ll work and learn as a staff assistant in a heart rehab clinic. Perhaps you’ll intern in the public relations department of a major employer, or as a staffer with a social services agency. Internships provide fresh perspectives. The University’s proximity to an economically diverse metropolitan area is an advantage.
From business basics to green energy, students team up
Team learning is big at UW-Green Bay, with students from various areas of expertise working together to address a common topic. One example is the Sustainability Learning Community. Courses in Philosophy, Business Administration and Environmental Science overlap for interdisciplinary focus on the environment, including joint field trips and projects.
Flame of knowledge
UW-Green Bay’s passion for applied, hands-on learning
In a medieval history class, students not only study 10th century Viking life, they immerse themselves in it while tending the iron forge or weaving fabric during a visit to a historically authentic replica village. Hands-on learning has always been central to a UW-Green Bay education, regardless of major.
360° of teamwork
Softball joins UW-Green Bay’s list of NCAA Tourney teams
Phoenix softball had its best season in years, winning 27 games and a spot in the NCAA Division I Tournament. The squad came together with dedication and teamwork to win the Horizon League. Men’s tennis also earned an NCAA bid this spring, and men’s and women’s basketball won conference titles.
360° of excellence
Students work side by side with world-class experts
UW-Green Bay’s size and commitment to first-rate teaching and learning mean students work closely with highly accomplished faculty mentors. The course Invertebrate Biology, for example, puts the amazing resources of the Richter Museum of Natural History at students’ fingertips while placing them side-by-side with a nationally renowned researcher, Prof. Michael Draney.
The original ‘Eco U’
Sciences remain a UW-Green Bay strength
University researchers track trophy northern pike on their Green Bay spawning grounds, part of a nationwide fisheries study commissioned by Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium. UW-Green Bay has a number of strong academic programs, but in its earliest days the school was famous for environmentalism and labeled “Eco U” by Newsweek magazine.

Partnerships put world of discovery in reach
At UW-Green Bay, learning isn’t confined to the classroom, lab or even community. It’s not even confined to the United States. Partnerships and exchange programs present special opportunities. One example is the University’s collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution’s Tropical Research Institute. Students collect biodiversity data at sites throughout Panama.
