Responding to Wyoming workforce needs, the University of Wyoming will offer three new bachelor’s degree programs starting this fall.

The UW Board of Trustees Thursday approved new bachelor’s degrees in general studies; elementary and special education; and art education.

“The university’s strategic plan, ‘Breaking Through: 2017-2022,’ calls for development of academic programs that address workforce needs of the state and region,” Provost Kate Miller says. “The new Bachelor of General Studies provides a high-quality and flexible degree option for nontraditional and transfer students, making a college degree more accessible to the many adult Wyomingites with some college credits but no degree. And the elementary/special education and art education degrees will help fill critical needs for teachers in our state’s public schools.”
