Western lets you use your unique background to earn a degree on your own terms, and find the career path that drives your next mission in life. With more than 31 degrees and 31 certificate programs at Western, you have many options.
Many programs at Western are offered through distance learning and online, allowing you to continue employment while pursuing a degree or certificate. Distance learning is available at Western’s outreach centers in 12 towns throughout Southwestern Wyoming. No matter which way you decide to work toward a degree or certificate, the concerned and helpful faculty and smaller class sizes will make the college experience the best that it can be.
Western was the first college in Wyoming to establish a child care center on campus, knowing that student-parents could better succeed in their academic pursuits if they have on-campus, high quality child care. The Children's Center is open to help you balance work, school, and parenting.
