LA CROSSE, Wis. – Continuing with its strategic plan to grow enrollment and promote academic distinction and student success, Viterbo University will offer four new majors in the growing fields of health care and sustainability beginning this fall.

The majors in health care build upon the strong programs we have in nursing and other fields in the health sector.”
