Why Our Professors Stand Out

Time and investment in student success make the difference

When you choose a college you want to make sure it's the right one for you. A good fit for your schedule, affordable tuition and interesting courses are all important factors in your choice. One more factor to consider: the quality of a school's professors. 

Professors are an integral part of any college experience. UW Colleges Online is home to exceptional faculty dedicated to student success. Here are just a few ways our faculty members stand out.

1. They're experts in their fields

Over 90 percent of our professors hold doctorates or the highest degree in their discipline. That means our students get quality time with experts in 20 departments, from geography and philosophy to chemistry and economics. Our exceptional faculty help students earn a UW education online, and at an affordable price.

On average, our professors spend more than 28 of their working hours a week teaching students, the highest amount of any of the schools in the entire UW System. That means you won't struggle to find an opportunity to connect with your professor. They'll be with you every step of the way.

3. They do more than teach
