UW Oshkosh's Four Colleges

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh provides four distinct colleges from which students can choose. All four offer degrees for healthcare-interested students.  They are the College of Business, the College of Education and Human Services, the College of Letters and Science and the College of Nursing.

The College of Business ensures that each student has had real-world work experience prior to graduation and it is the only college in Wisconsin that has AACSB accreditation. To any of the 8 COB majors, a healthcare emphasis can be added.

The College of Education and Human Services began in 1871 as the Oshkosh Normal School and has not lost its dedication to teacher education since. Through the 14 different departments and divisions, students are able to find the best degree for them. The Department of Human Kinetics and Health Education is a nationally recognized program that prepares students for a future in physical education, which promotes the health of K-12 students.

The College of Letters and Science is the most varied college, offering 37 majors and many more minors, pre-professional programs and graduate programs.  The vast majority of PreHealth students at UW Oshkosh opt for a major within the COLS.  COLS majors that send BS earners right into patient care practice include Medical Technology and Radiologic Science.  Healthcare-science and/or healthcare-business emphases are offered through the Biology, Kinesiology, and Psychology departments.

The College of Nursing holds altruism, autonomy, human dignity, integrity and social justice as its values. This is reflected in the education it provides the future heatlhcare professionals who enter the college. It is accredited through the AACN to ensure that UW Oshkosh's nursing students get the best education possible. Students can choose from 3 nursing program options to best ensure their personal goals and needs are being met.
