The College of Arts & Sciences
The College of Arts and Sciences has a wide range of departments and programs that make us a unique college. Although our majors and departments are diverse, what they all have in common is providing our students with an engaging liberal education, unique local and global academic opportunities, supportive faculty and academic resources.
At its core, the College of Arts and Sciences teaches students to think critically and creatively about the world around them. We prepare our students to be engaged citizens of the world — not just preparing them for a job, but preparing them for their future.
100th Anniversary of Bands - Matching Gift Opportunity!
The 2022-2023 academic year marks the Centennial Celebration of the University Bands at UW–Eau Claire. In 1922, student leader Forrest Mortiboy and twenty fellow students formed the first band at UWEC. Today, the University Band program consists of three concert bands (Wind Symphony, Symphony Band, University Band), four jazz ensembles, numerous chamber ensembles and combos, the Blugold Athletic Band (BAB), the Blugold Marching Band (BMB), and serves over 700 UWEC students across every major on campus. The ensembles frequently perform on campus, in the community, region, country, and internationally.
