There are opportunities for you to obtain pre-professional work in a number of fields. In some areas, such as law and medicine, you will complete the Bachelor of Arts degree or Bachelor of Science degree before being admitted to a professional school. Other pre-professional programs at UW-W provide one, two or three years of study for students who will then transfer to a professional school. While at UW-W, you will be obtaining a well-rounded liberal education recommended by professional schools in addition to introductory courses in your professional area.

If you transfer to a professional school at the end of your junior year, you may have part of your work in the professional school applied toward completion of the bachelor's degree at UW-Whitewater. Details must be worked out with the Dean of the College of Letters and Sciences prior to your junior year.
 
 

As a student in a pre-professional curriculum you will be assigned a faculty adviser who is familiar with the requirements for admission to professional schools. If you have chosen a specific professional school, your adviser will help you to develop a program which meets the requirements of the institution to which you plan to apply. If you have not decided on a professional school, your adviser will help you develop a flexible program while aiding you in the search for a school to meet your needs. In Pre-Engineering, UW-W has a transfer agreement with UW-Platteville whereby students who perform satisfactorily may be automatically accepted into its Engineering program (contact a Pre-Engineering adviser for details).
 
 

Every effort is made to assist you in your admission to the professional school of your choice; however, you should be aware that admission to some programs is extremely competitive, and whether or not you are admitted will depend upon your academic record and your scores on admissions tests.

For further information on the pre-professional curriculums available at UW-W please contact one of the advisers listed above.

INDIVIDUALIZED OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN THE CURRICULUM
 
 

Individually Designed Major. If you wish to focus your study on a topic or problem area which falls outside the limits of the traditional major programs, you, together with your adviser, may design your own individually designed major. This individualized major permits an integration of the courses and programs offered by the University. For details and requirements of this major see Index.

Individually Designed Minor. The individualized minor can help you meet educational goals which cannot be met by the conventional minor programs. You can plan your own minor consisting of courses in areas related to your goals. See Index for details and requirements.

The major encompasses study of a wide range of disciplines, including the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences, which enable students to develop breadth of vision, a capacity for critical thinking, and a fundamental understanding of human nature, society and values. The major also fosters development of skills and abilities employers consider most important, such as problem solving, analytical thinking, interpersonal relations and communications skills, among others. Applied minors such as Professional Business Studies, Public Relations, and Legal Studies complement this major especially well.
 
 

The Liberal Studies major is particularly appropriate for non-traditional, returning and transfer students who wish to complete a degree.

INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED MAJOR (BA/BS)
 
 

This major is designed to permit you to focus your study on a topic or problem area which falls outside the limits of a conventional major. Each major is individualized. What is deemed appropriate for you may be deemed inappropriate for another student. The purpose of the major is to accommodate an integration of the courses and programs now offered by the University; it is not a means of forming special majors or degrees which the University is not authorized to offer. The Individually Designed Major, leading to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree, must consist of an approved and coherent pattern of courses taken in more than one department.

OPTION I WITH A MINOR
 
 

MAJOR - 33 UNITS

 1. SELECT 33 UNITS IN CONSULTATION WITH INDIVIDUALIZED MAJOR COMMITTEE. THE MAJOR MAY INCLUDE NO MORE THAN 21 UNITS IN ANY ONE DEPARTMENT AND MUST INCLUDE AT LEAST 17 UNITS IN COURSES NUMBERED 300 OR ABOVE.

 AN APPROVED MINOR IS REQUIRED FOR THIS MAJOR
 
 

OPTION II WITHOUT A MINOR
 
 

MAJOR - 54 UNITS

 1. SELECT 54 UNITS IN CONSULTATION WITH

 INDIVIDUALIZED MAJOR COMMITTEE. THE MAJOR MAY INCLUDE NO MORE THAN 24 UNITS IN ANY ONE DEPARTMENT AND MUST INCLUDE AT LEAST 27 UNITS IN COURSES NUMBERED 300 OR ABOVE. NO MINOR IS REQUIRED.
 
 

Writing Proficiency Requirement: See the Individually Designed Major program chairperson for course(s) that satisfy this requirement.

In either Option I or II of the Individually Designed Major you will choose as an adviser a faculty member whose competence is in the area of your interest. Together with the adviser you will plan the major and submit a detailed outline of the major and a statement of its rationale and goals to the College Committee on Individually Designed Majors for its approval. The proposed major must be approved, with the possibility of subsequent amendment, no later than the beginning of your junior year. Your program of study must be planned and approved in advance of admission to the major. Any changes in your major at a later date will require written permission of the Committee.

Under either Option I or II you may count at most 40 units from any one department for fulfillment of total degree requirements. It is a requirement that over half the units in either option must be in courses numbered 300 or above. At least 50 percent of the units counting toward your major requirements must be earned subsequent to your admission to the major. You may take work outside the College of Letters and Sciences but more than one-half the units in your major must be earned in the College. Primary supervision of the major rests with the Committee on Individually Designed Majors. Inquiries should be directed to: Chairperson, Committee on Individually Designed Majors, College of Letters and Sciences.

INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED MINOR
 
 

MINOR - 24 UNITS

 1. SELECT 24 UNITS IN CONSULTATION WITH ADVISOR AND DEAN OF COLLEGE OF LETTERS AND SCIENCES

 2. IF MORE THAN 15 UNITS ARE TO BE TAKEN IN ANY ONE DEPARTMENT OF THE COLLEGE OF L&S THERE MUST BE PRIOR APPROVAL BY BOTH THAT DEPARTMENT AND THE DEPARTMENT OF YOUR MAJOR.

 AT LEAST 12 UNITS PROPOSED FOR THE MINOR MUST BE EARNED AFTER THE PLAN HAS BEEN APPROVED. IF MORE THAN 12 UNITS ARE FROM A SINGLE COLLEGE OUTSIDE OF LETTERS & SCIENCES, APPROVAL OF THE DEAN OF THAT COLLEGE IS REQUIRED. NO MORE THAN 9 UNITS FROM THE MAJOR DISCIPLINE(S) MAY BE INCLUDED.
 
 

A statement of the content, nature and rationale of your proposed individualized minor must be approved by your major department. The minor should consist primarily of courses above the general survey level. Further, the proposed minor shall be sent to the Office of the Dean of the College of Letters and Sciences for the Dean's approval or referral to the College Curriculum Committee for its approval.

The minor should be prepared early in your college career, preferably before the second term of your junior year. Any substantial subsequent changes in your minor should be approved by your major department and the Dean.

The responsibility for certifying that you have met the requirements of your minor rests with the department of your major, if you are a Letters and Sciences major. For students not Letters and Sciences majors, the responsibility of certifying the completion of the minor on the application for diploma rests with the College of Letters and Sciences. The signature sheet for the Individualized Minor is available in the Letters and Sciences Office, Salisbury 124.
