UWM Undergraduate Catalog 2015-2016


HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

This undergraduate catalog is divided into two basic content areas.

The front section (through the Academic Information section) contains basic, noncurricular information pertinent to undergraduate education.

The school and college sections that follow include program requirements, course descriptions, and faculty listings.

KEY TO COURSE NUMBERING SYSTEM

100-299 Lower division courses not open to graduate students for credit.

300-699 Upper division courses that may, if so designated, carry graduate credit. Courses with level "U" are offered for undergraduate credit only; courses with level "U/G" may be offered for undergraduate and/or graduate credit. Insofar as a course approved for graduate credit may not be offered for graduate credit in a given semester, the current Timetable should be consulted. Junior standing is normally a minimum prerequisite for 300-699 courses that carry graduate credit.

Ex.: COMPSCI 252 Computer Programming II . . . Prereq: COMPSCI 152 (NP). Students may not repeat COMPSCI 152 for the purpose of receiving a higher grade after enrolling in COMPSCI 252.

C-Corequisite: A course that may be taken as either a prerequisite or as a concurrent registration with the higher level course.

Ex.: HUM KIN 270 (370) - HUM KIN 270 is the same course as HUM KIN 370. A student with credit in HUM KIN 370 may enroll in 270 as a repeat unless 370 was taken more than once.
