Dear Abbot Pennings,

What programs or fields of study are most commonly selected by current students? Are there newer academic programs now available to students at St. Norbert?

Answer:

The variety of academic programs offered at St. Norbert continues to draw many prospective students to the college. According to 2006 graduation data, the top five majors were:

1) Business administration
2) Communication, media and theatre
3) Elementary education
4) Biology
5) Psychology

The college continues to research the development of new programs for its students. A minor in women’s and gender studies is one of the more recent options added.

Another exciting new opportunity starts this year. Incoming students will have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Bellin College in Green Bay while living on the St. Norbert campus and benefiting from the liberal arts foundation and student life experience offered by St. Norbert college.

Do know of a prospective student interested in any of these fields of study, or in other programs at St. Norbert College? If so, learn how you can refer a student. In appreciation of your efforts, their application fee will be waived if they apply under this initiative.
