Milwaukee Colleges and Universities

Milwaukee, Wisconsin wasn't in the past what many would think of as a college town. Originally a hub for brewing and manufacturing and still the home of the Miller Brewing Company, Milwaukee has matured into a city with the sixth-highest student population in the US and Canada. Recent graduates of Milwaukee colleges and universities can seek employment at a number of large but locally based corporations, including Harley-Davidson and Kohl's.

A wide range of specialized public and private Milwaukee colleges and universities accept students to all kinds of degree programs. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Marquette University, a Jesuit school, are surrounded by other colleges and universities of design, engineering, technical skills and medical science. While settling on a program of study, students at Milwaukee colleges and universities can explore the Black Holocaust Museum, the Milwaukee Public Museum, and other collections of art, the opera, theater, and ballet.
