WCSU Undergraduate Catalog 2019-2020

President’s Message

At Western Connecticut State University our mission is to help students explore areas of study and learn to adapt in an ever-changing world. By introducing students to a variety of disciplines and teaching methods, we help you find the path that is the best for you. We also offer a campus life that is rich with opportunities to learn outside the classroom, which prepares you for a lifetime of personal and professional growth.

Our campus represents the diversity that characterizes public higher education today. Some students are traditional college age and live on campus; others are balancing their studies while caring for families and working. We provide the resources to encourage every student, from organized clubs to career counseling and tutoring.

At WCSU we offer small classes taught by dedicated professors. Our goal is to make a lasting impact, one that will lead to success after graduation.

Western Connecticut State University also participates with the community in campus and community events and has expanded the physical structure of our campus. In recent years, we opened a new 130,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Visual and Performing Arts Center on the Westside campus and a $49 million Science Building with a Weather Center on our Midtown campus. We take every opportunity to provide our students with the very best they need to focus on their goals. We educate students not only for their first jobs, but also for their careers.

Our students’ futures are our mission and passion. We look forward to helping you shape yours.

Welcome to WCSU!



Dr. John B. Clark
