Undergraduate Programs

The Biology major prepares students for careers in cell & molecular biology, biochemistry, plant & animal biology, genetics, physiology, ecology & field biology.


Chemists have made significant contributions to the improvement of the quality of our lives. They have played a vital role in the advancement of so many fields.


Computer Science is the study of the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the design and use of computers.

Computer Science

Our Electrical Engineering degree is the only major of its kind in this region. From tiny microchips to huge generators, electrical innovation powers nearly every aspect of our lives.

Electrical Engineering

Engineering Technology includes a trio of high-demand, high quality degrees; Electrical, Mechanical & Environmental Engineering Technology.

Engineering Technology

The Environmental Science major prepares students to analyze, understand, and solve environmental problems and includes field experiences, internships and practicums.

Environmental Science

Geoscience is the study of the physical components of the environment, the various processes affected by those components, and the interactions between the physical environment & living organisms.


Human Biology majors choose an emphasis within the major that best facilitates their goals; health science, exercise science, nutritional science/dietetics, cytotechnology or general human biology.

Human Biology

Mathematics has programs of study in two emphasis areas: math and statistics. A student who elects a major in Mathematics must choose an area of emphasis from one of these two programs of study.


Mechanical Engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, and mathematics to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.

Mechanical Engineering

Physics is the study of matter and energy, and their interactions in the areas of mechanics, heat, sound, optics, electricity, magnetism, radiation, and the atomic and sub-atomic world.


Water Science is the study of water and its interaction with solids, liquids, gases, and organisms in various Earth systems.

Graduate Programs

The Master of Athletic Training program is appropriate for students with an existing bachelor’s degree in a related field (e.g. Human Biology, Kinesiology, Exercise Science) who would like to pursue the profession of athletic training.  The MAT program is designed to satisfy all of the requirements specified by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), as well as the graduation requirements for UW-Green Bay.  UW-Green Bay will seek accreditation of the MAT program through CAATE, which will allow graduates of the program to sit for the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Board of Certification Exam.



The Environmental Science and Policy program is appropriate for students with interests in the scientific and/or public policy aspects of contemporary environmental challenges. It provides a course of study that prepares its graduates for positions in scientific, technical and administrative organizations and agencies. The programs core focuses on identification and analysis of environmental issues and on developing interdisciplinary approaches and solutions to problems. The program offers four areas of emphasis with both thesis and non-thesis options: Ecosystems Studies, Environmental Technology and Analysis, Environmental Policy and Administration, a Personal Program of Study and students choose to specialize in one area depending on future career interests.


The Master of Science in Sustainable Management is appropriate for students with an existing bachelor’s degree in a range of disciplines and the desire to continue their education in this developing field. The interdisciplinary nature of this degree encourages students to examine sustainability from different perspectives and the curriculum ensures that students gain a comprehensive understanding of the ways in which changing human activities affect our natural, social and economic environments. Designed for working adults with real-world experience, the online Master of Science in Sustainable Management will strengthen and expand your knowledge of sustainability and environmental issues, preparing you for high-level leadership positions at your current organization or at top companies around the world.


Centers & Institutes

The Cofrin Center for Biodiversity enhances educational programs at UWGB by providing hands-on resources for undergraduate and graduate courses, by establishing student internship opportunities, and by attracting visiting scientists and speakers. Research is promoted by a student grants and by quality research facilities and staff support.

Cofrin Center for Biodiversity

The establishment of the EMBI is a step in the evolution of UW-Green Bay’s historic mission of studying environmental issues and developing solutions to problems; solutions that recognize the critical interconnections between science, policy and business, and the social contexts within which they occur.
