Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Bruce Wade, Professor of Mathematics, Coordinator, EMS E447, (414) 229-5225, wade@uwm.edu


This course of study leads to a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science awarded jointly by the College of Letters and Science and the College of Engineering and Applied Science. As such, it contains in-depth study in both colleges. The degree retains the flavor of a liberal arts degree through humanities and social science course requirements that go beyond the minima required by the University’s general education requirements. The liberal arts coursework will enhance the analytical skills that are the focus of the applied mathematics portion of the curriculum. The computer science coursework will both strengthen the application of mathematics in problem solving and, in turn, be enhanced by the analytical skills acquired through the applied math coursework.

Students who intend to complete the program in four years will need to begin taking mathematics in their first semester. Such students should have a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee mathematics placement level of B (ready for precalculus) or better.

Admission
As soon as students realize their interest in the AMCS degree, they should consult with an AMCS advisor either in CEAS or L&S, who assists in planning a program. Students may be given the AMCS classification at any point in their studies; however, they are not formally admitted to the major until their junior year. Admission to the junior year of the program requires a GPA of at least 2.500 in 8 credits of mathematics courses at or above the 200 level and 6 credits of computer science courses at or above the 200 level.

General Requirements
For the BS (AMCS) degree, 120 credits are required, of which 80 must be taken from the College of Letters and Science. Students must satisfy the general education requirements (GER) of the University. They must complete at least 6 credits each from humanities and social sciences, 3 credits from the arts, and 6 additional credits in any of these three areas or in foreign languages. Students also must take at least 8 credits of natural sciences outside of mathematics or mathematical statistics, including at least one laboratory course from biological sciences, chemistry, or physics. A cultural diversity course must be included among the humanities and social science courses selected.

An overall GPA of 2.000 on all coursework attempted at UWM is required for this degree. In addition, students must achieve a 2.000 GPA on all coursework attempted, including transfer work. A minimum 2.0 GPA must be earned on all 300-level and above courses taken to satisfy the advanced requirements. Students satisfy the residency requirement for the degree by completing at UWM both a minimum of 15 credits of the required advanced courses and one of the following:

  • The last 30 credits;
  • 45 of the last 60 credits;
  • Any 90 credits.

Forensic Sciences Certificate Program

Fred Anapol, Professor of Anthropology, Director, Center for Forensic Sciences, (414) 229-0510, cfs@uwm.edu

The Biomedical Sciences Program, Criminal Justice Program, and Departments of Anthropology and Chemistry cooperate in offering three certificates in the area of forensic sciences. Sponsored jointly by the Colleges of Letters and Science and Health Sciences and the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare, these certificate curricula are designed to train students in basic skills that will provide the foundation for careers in the fields of law enforcement, death investigation, pathology, and toxicology. Certificates are offered in Death Investigation, Forensic Science, and Forensic Toxicology. Where applicable, the curriculum meets the criteria required for professional certification examinations (Medicolegal Death Investigation, Toxicological Chemist).

Undergraduate students who pursue a forensic sciences certificate maintain their identity as majors in their home departments and continue to progress toward a baccalaureate degree while in the certificate program. Courses include lecture presentations and laboratory experiences that cover fundamental areas of forensic science and provide unique instruction on techniques that are essential in the specific certificates. Students are given instruction by faculty members at UWM and forensic professionals in the Milwaukee community. Any of the programs may be pursued as a post-baccalaureate educational certificate. Individuals who are not enrolled in a degree program at UWM, but are seeking continuing education for career development, may be admitted to courses in the certificate programs by meeting prerequisites with equivalent experience or consent of the instructor.

Curricular Requirements

To receive one of the following certificates, students must complete at least one half of the required credits on the UWM campus. A minimum grade point average of 2.500 must be achieved on the required credits. All options within the certificate require at least a basic knowledge of chemistry and biology. To meet this requirement, prior to registering themselves in the Forensic Sciences Certificate Program, students must successfully complete Chem 100 (Chemical Science) or equivalent and Bio Sci 100 (Survey of Zoology) or equivalent.

Global Health Certificate

Anne Dressel, Director, Center for Global Health Equity, Nursing, CUN G7, (414) 229-3995, Certificate Coordinator
Deatra Holloway, Senior Advisor, Nursing, CUN 129, (414) 229-5484, hdd@uwm.edu

Global Health is an interdisciplinary undergraduate certificate administered by the Director of the Center for Global Health Equity and the Global Health Advisory Committee (GHAC). 
The world is economically, politically, culturally, and technologically connected and interdependent with increasingly mobile populations seeking economic opportunity, security, and safety as a result of civil unrest, regional conflicts, diminished natural resources, poverty, and disease. Although some health problems and issues remain specific to levels and contexts of socio-cultural, economic, and political development within countries, many of the same problems, issues, and concerns transcend geographic boundaries, as should appropriate approaches and solutions. The concept of “global health” describes and addresses these realities. An undergraduate certificate in Global Health will provide students with academic inquiry into:

  • the global burden of disease
  • the social determinants of health in a global context
  • the principles, language, and measurement tools used in global health
  • ethics and global health
  • the global cultural, religious, and historical contexts of health, disease, and health care

The Global Health Certificate will provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to focus on current global health issues and concerns, policies, processes, programs, and practices that contribute to and hinder global health improvement. A wide array of courses will help students better comprehend the interdisciplinary approach to understanding and addressing global health issues.

Eligibility
The Global Health Certificate is intended to enhance a bachelor’s degree. The certificate is available to all students seeking a bachelor’s degree from UWM and to students who previously have received a bachelor’s degree from UWM or any other accredited college or university.

Program Requirements
To obtain the certificate, the student must complete, with a minimum grade point average of 2.500, at least 21 credits in approved Global Health courses, of which 12 must be earned in residence at UWM. Of these 12 residence credits, nine must be taken at the 300 level or above. A minimum of 6 credits must be taken in the College of Letters and Science. A minimum of 6 credits must be taken in the College of Nursing. No more than 9 credits from any one department may count toward the certificate. A maximum of 6 credits of independent study may count toward program requirements. Courses for the certificate may not be taken on a credit/no credit basis. The following are required:

Awarding the Certificate
Students currently involved in baccalaureate studies who successfully complete the requirements of the program will be awarded the certificate at the time of graduation. Students who already have a bachelor’s degree will receive the certificate upon completion of the program requirements.


Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies

Coordinator: Patrice Petro, Vice Provost for International Education & Professor of English

Christine Wolf, Advisor, Garland 111, (414) 229-6925, cawolf@uwm.edu (Last names A-L)

Aparna Datey, Advisor, Garland 113, (414) 229-3042, datey@uwm.edu (Last names M-Z)

The College of Letters and Science and several of UWM's professional schools have formed a partnership to offer students a unique program of study that will prepare them for positions of global leadership in our increasingly interconnected world.

The Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies combines the considerable strengths of a liberal arts and sciences education with the specialized knowledge of professional studies enhanced by a thorough, integrated international emphasis. While graduates of the Global Studies program will have a competitive advantage, especially in areas of employment that benefit from an international education, the analytical, communication, and cultural awareness knowledge and skills acquired through the Global Studies degree will serve students well in any area of work.

Courses of Study

Global Studies at UWM is a four-year undergraduate program consisting of the following pre-professional tracks: Global Communications, Global Management, Global Security, Global Sustainability, and Global Urban Development. Common to all tracks is the degree's core curriculum, which includes three foundational Global Studies core courses; one semester (12 cr minimum) of study abroad; an international internship; eight semesters (or equivalent) of foreign language study; and a course in world regions. In addition, students take specialized courses designated for their elected Global Studies track.

The Global Communications track focuses on the relevance of language, culture, and identity in understanding innovations in and applications of technology, media, communications, information science, and technology transfer. This track will allow students to build technical competencies while also grounding them in a broader understanding of technology's impact on human lives. This track affords a range of options that allows students to prepare for careers in fields such as marketing, international business, advertising, information technology, new media, and translation. The College of Letters and Science awards this degree. However, the College of Letters and Science and the School of Information Studies (SOIS) will award the degree jointly to students who complete at least 21 credits of elective courses through SOIS.

The Global Management track, focusing on the impact of globalization on business and the world economy, will prepare students as future managers capable of analyzing transnational issues; strategizing within a global, cross-cultural context; and implementing projects with a strong understanding of globalization's implications for the private and public sectors. This track will prepare students to assume leadership roles in many areas, but it will be advantageous especially in such fields as international business, consulting, education, government, and public policy. In addition, graduates of this track will meet all the requirements for admission to an MBA program. The College of Letters and Science and the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business jointly award this degree.

The Global Security track examines the changing conceptions and conditions shaping security in a global context. In addition to exploring traditional notions of security based on the nation-state and the international system, coursework in this track considers a wide range of issues including global health, the environment, human rights, peace-building efforts, 21st-century conflict, social movements, migration, ethnicity, and identity. This track will prepare students to pursue careers in government agencies and non-governmental organizations addressing areas such as international development, global conflict management, and global sustainability. The College of Letters and Science awards this degree.

The Global Sustainability track develops student expertise in the diverse concepts of global sustainability and their application to development fields. Students following this track will be able to: recognize and explain principles of sustainability in human, environmental, and governance systems; and evaluate and identify methods for planning and implementing sustainable development strategies in differing contexts. This track affords graduates a range of career options including positions such as sustainability specialists/coordinators/officers, educators/outreach coordinators, and project managers, working in industry, consultancy, utilities, regulatory agencies, non-profits, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Students are also prepared to enter graduate programs in sustainability. The College of Letters and Science awards this degree.

The Global Urban Development track will help students acquire a holistic understanding of the global dimensions and local variations of urban development, the histories and economy of global cities, the causes and implications of urban growth, and nuances of international development as applied to changing global scenarios. It will prepare students for further professional studies and careers in architecture, urban planning, public policy, community development, or Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The College of Letters and Science and the School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) jointly award this degree.

Enrolling in the Global Studies BA Degree Program

Students applying to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and declaring a primary interest in Global Studies on their application forms will be assigned a Global Studies advisor at the Center for International Education. Students may enroll in the Global Studies degree program by declaring their major as global studies, which is possible after they have earned 56 credits. The process includes (1) reviewing the degree requirements with a Global Studies advisor and (2) signing the declaration of major form. Students who intend to pursue a Global Studies degree are strongly advised to declare before earning 75 credits.

Curriculum Requirements. To earn the Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies, students in all tracks must complete 120 credits, including a minimum of 36 credits in upper-division courses (numbered 300 or above), while fulfilling the requirements below. GPAs of at least 2.000 overall and 2.500 in the selected track are required for graduation. Students also are responsible for completing the University-wide General Education Requirements.
