At Wisconsin Lutheran College, you’ll not only have small class sizes and a variety of academic options, you’ll also have the opportunity to work side-by-side with professors doing groundbreaking heart disease research, teach in local schools as early as freshman year, travel to Zambia for a nursing clinical, take a British literature course in England, or conduct marine biology research in Grenada.

Receive a well-rounded liberal arts education and take advantage of robust internship opportunities that make you adaptable and marketable in ever-changing job markets, and equip you for successful career or graduate school endeavors. Those are just a few reasons why WLC may be the perfect college for you.

  • The world is changing fast. You need to be adaptable. You need broad, interdisciplinary preparation. This is why WLC was founded on and remains rooted in the liberal arts. If you limit your education to one focus, your degree could be obsolete in less time than it took you to obtain that education. To compete today, you need liberal training in diverse disciplines.

    At Wisconsin Lutheran College, we prepare you for success and challenge you to be a leader in your chosen academic field. Taught from a Christian perspective, each course helps you develop skills you’ll need in your career: critical thinking, communication, teamwork, and decision-making. During freshman year, WLC students take Strengths-based evaluations, receive personalized academic coaching and individual attention, and participate in seminar classes designed to assist them with academic and career planning.

    Academic Highlights

    • Majors are regularly updated to keep up with the changing world.
    • Faculty members are experts in their field, bringing real-world experience into the classroom.
    • Class sizes are small, allowing for one-on-one mentoring by nationally ranked faculty.
    • Students are also solidly prepared for graduate school. Our alumni say that their graduate classes are often extensions of courses taken at WLC. It’s not uncommon for faculty and students to work collaboratively - some students even publish their work in academic journals or present their findings at professional conferences.

    Unsure of Your Major?

    Don’t worry! You're not alone. Your advisor will help you explore your interests and select classes. Since you won’t declare a major until your sophomore year, there’s plenty of time to take a variety of courses to help you narrow your focus.
