Staying on track for graduation 

Kalyn Williams
As you work through your spring term courses, take a moment to review your degree evaluation and see how far you have to go - it may be less than you think! Getting down to the last few courses in your program is very exciting, but it can also be intimidating once your thoughts turn to the future. However, there are several things that you can do to make completing your degree a little more manageable.  

Master's degree brings new opportunities 

Bryan Hosford
MSPM Graduate
Bryan Hosford is the type of person who is always looking for a new challenge. While being the Principle IT Business Analyst/Project Manager for an international publishing company might sound like more than enough, Hosford wanted to push himself. He hoped to find something that would both challenge him and help him focus on his long-term career goals. UW-Platteville offered the perfect program for his needs with the Master of Science in Project Management.
