In addition, UWFox offers five different bachelor’s degrees through collaborations with several of the UW four-year campuses. Included are a B.S in Mechanical Engineering and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering (through UW-Platteville), a B.L.S. in Organizational Administration and a B.L.S. in Leadership Development (through UW-Oshkosh), and a B.A. or a B.S. in American Studies (through UW-Stevens Point). All classes for these degree programs are held at UWFox.
