Western Connecticut State University (WCSU), in Danbury, Connecticut offers practical programs that nurture one’s talents and interests while preparing students to meet the economic demands of adult life.
WCSU offers undergraduate and graduate programs in such high-demand professional fields as Nursing, Business Administration and health-related fields as well as a range of liberal arts and sciences programs in fields such as literature, history, education and social sciences.
WCSU also has programs that blend the creative with the practical. There is, for example, the MFA in writing, which is the first of its kind in the nation. Rather than focusing exclusively on creative writing, this MFA also trains students for more practical fields such as copywriting and technical writing.
The theatre program is similarly blended with students receiving training in the creative as well as the practical. In addition to acting, students are taught what they need to succeed in technical areas such as lighting, set design, stage-managing and sound.
Student life also represents a good blending of interests, with organizations including everything from cultural to religious to environmental groups.
Since WCSU is a state school, the tuition is reasonable. However, financial aid is also awarded based on need and other factors.
While WCSU has a rolling admissions policy, most students do enter in the fall. Admission is based on a variety of factors. Contact Western Connecticute State University for more information.
