Institutional ContextJump to: University of Wisconsin - Manitowoc | University of Wisconsin - Marinette
Campus: The University of Wisconsin - Manitowoc serves 460 credit students from its campus on Lake Michigan. The students at UW-MAN include 61% first-generation college students and 39% part-time students.
Geoscience program: The geoscience program at University of Wisconsin - Manitowoc is made up of 1 full time, tenure-track geography professor. The biology department offers an environmental science course. The geoscience program offers courses in Physical Geology, Geography, Introduction to GIS, Introduction to Maps and Air Photos, Introduction to Cultural Geography, World Regional Geography, and Human Impact to the Environment. UW-Manitowoc is a small campus and, as a result, enrollments are not large for any particular class. In geography/geology, there are normally a total of 50-75 students per semester. The largest enrollments are in Physical Geography. The typical student is a non-science major who needs a lab science course but does not want to take biology, chemistry, or physics. The department offers a geography, geoscience, and environmental science emphasis, but no majors.
Campus: The University of Wisconsin - Marinette serves almost 500 students at its campus on Green Bay in eastern Wisconsin. The students at UW-MNT include 64% first-generation college students and 56% part-time students.
Geoscience program: The geoscience program at University of Wisconsin - Marinette offers courses in Physical Geology, Historical Geology, Meteorology, Environmental Science, Geography, Earth System Science, Cultural Geography, Human Geography, and Regional Geography. It has one tenured faculty member. Across campus, most students do not have declared majors, and the vast majority of the students in geoscience classes are satisfying general education requirements, although we have been known to attract a few converts.
