The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and UW-Baraboo/Sauk County have entered into a new partnership that will allow Sauk County residents to earn a Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS) degree from UW Oshkosh at the UW-Baraboo/Sauk County campus.
UW-Baraboo/Sauk County students can earn credits toward both their associate and bachelor’s degrees simultaneously. With an emphasis in Leadership Development, UW Oshkosh’s BLS program is designed specifically to serve adult nontraditional students and will be delivered at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County using a combination of face-to-face classes, distance learning technology and online learning.
Students can earn their associate degree and fulfill the general education course requirements necessary to earn their bachelor’s degree from UW Oshkosh at the UW–Baraboo/Sauk County campus.
“It is especially important in our current economic times to encourage students to go on to obtain their four-year degree,” said UW Oshkosh Interim Provost E. Alan Hartman. “We are committed to providing new local avenues of entry for Wisconsin’s college-bound. We want to make sure students have readily available access to a four-year degree.”
UW-Baraboo/Sauk County Dean and Campus Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pleger and Hartman will sign the pact March 30 at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County.
