Change your life with high-impact practices

We do things a little differently at UW-Eau Claire. Our liberal arts curriculum encourages Blugolds to get out there and live what they are studying now, not after they graduate. Be exposed to new perspectives by experts in the field, people from other cultures, and customs that reveal the complexity of the world around you. Nearly 90 percent of our students have hands-on, high-impact experiences, giving them the confidence and courage to make a difference with their careers. Where will learning take you at UWEC?

Study abroad

One in five UWEC students is learning around the world through study abroad. We have been a leader in creating more than 50 exciting locations for you to explore. One in four students from each graduating class have studied abroad.

Undergraduate research

Blugolds do work that's often reserved for graduate students. The Council of Undergraduate Research named UWEC the number one master's-level university in the country in providing excellent undergrad research programs in 2016.
