Arts organizations make communities come alive – from symphonies to jazz bands, theaters to sculpture gardens, museums to community arts centers, public radio to festivals. All of that activity is made possible by arts managers.

Arts management can be an exciting, fulfilling career for someone who likes to be close to the arts and artists and wants to work behind the scenes to make the arts happen. Arts managers work behind the scenes to bring art and audiences together – raising funds, marketing, organizing volunteers and facilitating programs.

At UW-Green Bay, Arts Management is both a major and a minor. Many students pair the Arts Management major or minor with studies in music, studio art, theatre, dance, gallery and museum practices, English, or history. ... [-]

The Computer Science program is about problem solving and the ability to learn new ideas and apply them. That's because the heart of software design is not the language or the developer environment, but the ability to define a problem, analyze various components, and project and evaluate potential solutions, all of which are subject to limitations and constraints inherent in a given computer.

Students must understand that in industry there must be more than just a working program. Good software must not only work but must be fully documented, clearly written, and easily modifiable to meet changing and more extensive requirements.

Overview

The field of computer science is undergoing great changes as technology advances and the need for computer software increases. Students entering this field must not see a bachelor's degree in computer science as the culmination of study in the field. Rather, they must see it as the first step in a continuing education process that will last as long as they choose to stay in the field. The goal of the Computer Science major is to provide students with a strong foundation upon which they can continue to build as the field changes. Students can receive instruction in areas such as software design and project management, object-oriented programming, design of algorithms, operating systems, database management systems, neural networks, computer graphics, network programming, and more....

Economics is everywhere! As workers, consumers, and sometimes business owners all of us have through our daily activities gained some knowledge of how the economy functions. This knowledge, however, is not systematic and precise. The modern economy is an extremely complex system of social institutions. The systematic study of economics helps one to better understand this complex system of markets, enterprises (profit-motivated, government, and private, not-for-profit), unions, and many other economic and political interest groups that influence the economy and the role of government.

Here are a few basic practical questions the study of economics helps one to understand.

Why are wages and salaries so different? Some workers work for $5 per hour while others thousands of dollars per hour. Why does the price of housing different so much across cities? One can buy a very nice house in Green Bay for $200,000. That very same house would cost five or ten times more in many parts of the east and west coasts. Why do airfares differ so much for the same flight? For example, on a flight from, say, Chicago to Los Angeles in economy class, some people are paying a $200 fare while others are paying $800. ...

Human Development is an interdisciplinary program that explores human growth, development, and change, and that conceptualizes it as a lifelong process. The process occurs in multiple and diverse contexts and involves biological, cognitive, emotional, social, and moral development. Human Development is a suitable major or minor for students who plan any type of career that involves working with people and helping to solve human problems. Because it is a liberal arts major, career possibilities are varied, but many options fall within the broad areas of human services, education, and business. Alumni have worked as staff members of a domestic violence shelter, case managers at a social service agency, and as employees for advocacy groups such as AARP. Other graduates are involved in education-related careers, such as educational support, daycare and preschools, and college admissions. Another area in which many majors seek jobs is the business world, whether in sales, customer service, or even human resources. Human Development students also pursue graduate and professional training in fields such as human development and family studies, gerontology, community and public health, higher education/student affairs, marriage and family therapy, law, and other fields. Admission is highly selective and requires very strong academic credentials. Faculty advisers can help students tailor their choice of academic plan and electives to their individual career goals. As just one example, although a minor is not required to graduate with a Human Development major, minors or double-majors in such areas as Business, Human Biology, Public and Environmental Affairs, Women's and...

The humanities comprise those fields that study human creations of all sorts. The humanities thus include literary studies, philosophy, history, (including art history and history of science), foreign languages, cultural studies (including First Nations Studies), musicology, interdisciplinary studies, and parts of fields such as psychology, anthropology, and sociology.

There are two kinds of Bachelor's level degrees: a) those that train you for a specific career, and b) those that educate you to be able to be trained for a wide variety of careers.

Examples of degrees that train you for a specific career are nursing, accounting, and social work. These degrees train you well to practice a specific profession, but they do not prepare you well to be trained for many other professions. ... [-]

Psychology is the systematic and scientific study of behavior and experience. It seeks to explain how physiological, personal, social, and environmental conditions influence thought and action. Research with humans aims to understand, predict, and influence behavior.

Overview

In the past century, psychology has moved from being a branch of philosophy to being both an experimental science and an active helping profession. It has developed several specialized sub-areas with foci spanning from the level of the nerve cell (e.g., the neural basis of memory) to that of society (e.g., the developmental consequences of the Head Start program).

A strong grasp of psychology requires knowledge of the approach and content of each of its sub-areas. Students gain this understanding by completing courses in the four main cores: Physiological/Cognitive, Social/Personality, Developmental, and Clinical. They choose additional courses to meet individual needs with the help of a psychology advisor. Furthermore, students who major in psychology learn to evaluate research articles and to design, conduct and report experiments.... [-]
