Undergraduate Bulletin

ACADEMIC PROGRAM ARRAY

The complete array of all undergraduate programs available at this university are listed on these pages. Each degree is composed of a package of courses which include the Proficiency, General Education, the specific College degree requirements, writing competency, diversity, the major requirements, the minor requirements (when necessary) and any other unique requirements specific to each major. A minimum of 120 credits is required although some programs require more than the minimum and each program has a designated minimum grade point average requirement. To graduate a 2.0 ("C") UW-Whitewater cumulative grade point average is required as well as a 2.0 in the major and the minor; however, many programs require substantially higher grade point averages for admission to and graduation from the program. Each of these is detailed in the college and department sections.

COURSE LISTINGS

Courses are listed numerically by subject area.

The Course Numbering System Key designates courses by six digits. The first three numbers refer to an internal university numbering system that designates subject area and subdiscipline within that area. The second set of three numbers refers to the specific course within the subject area. For example, in the designation 150-143, the 150 refers to the subject area, Music, and 143 refers to the specific course, Survey of American Jazz.

In any reference to a specific course the full set of six numbers should always be used.

Course numbers 000-099 are courses that carry no credit towards the degree requirements; courses numbered 100-299 are lower division courses not open to graduate students for credit. Courses numbered 300-499 are upper division courses which may be dual listed as 500-699 for graduate credit. It is recommended that entering freshmen not enroll in any of these courses without specific department approval. Courses at the 700 level are open only to graduate students.

A course number may occasionally have a letter suffix to designate that it is open only to students with a specific educational background preparation.

The letter "G" appearing after the course title identifies the course as one that can be used in satisfying the University General Education requirement. The second letter following the "G" identifies the category within General Education in which the course applies. Proficiency and diversity courses are identified with the appropriate term after the course title.

SPECIAL COURSES

These courses are available on a selected basis through most of the academic departments. The course descriptions are common to all departments. However, the prerequisites and the number of credits permitted in certain programs may differ. Note the limitation of credits for degree/programs identified in the Bulletin.

SUBJECT AREA NUMBERING SYSTEM

The first three numbers of the course designate both the department involved and any subdiscipline subject area within the department. Because students will need to refer to courses by subject area, the identification numbering system is listed below, first alphabetically by subject area, and then numerically.

The 100 series represent work in the College of Arts and Communication; the 200 series the College of Business and Economics; the 400-500 series the College of Education; the 600-800 series the College of Letters and Sciences; the 900 series interdisciplinary courses.
