Capstone Experience (1 credit)  Students in all majors and major options in the Department of Mathematical Sciences must complete a "Capstone Experience." The aim of the department's capstone experience is to encourage independent learning. Students complete a research paper in the context of this course, which satisfies the L&S research requirement. For Actuarial Science majors, the capstone is Math 599. For Atmospheric Science majors, the capstone is Atm Sci 599. Mathematics majors may choose either Math 599 or Math 575. Students must obtain consent of a professor to enroll in Atm Sci 599 or Math 599.


Honors in the Major  Students in Atmospheric Sciences who meet all of the following criteria can be awarded honors in the major upon graduation:
 3.000 cumulative GPA in all UWM graded credits;
 3.500 GPA over all UWM courses counting toward the Atmospheric Sciences major;
 3.500 GPA over all upper division UWM courses counting toward the Atmospheric Sciences major; and Successful completion of at least two semesters of research and/or internship experiences. The research and internship experiences can include one or more of the Capstone Experience (Atm Sci 599), a directed independent study for credit (Atm Sci 699), an internship for credit (Atm Sci 695), the Atmospheric Sciences Study Abroad course (Atm Sci 297/497), undergraduate research for compensation, and participation in the Innovative Weather program at the staff level. The staff level of Innovative Weather is the third level of participation, coming after a preinternship (several weeks in one semester) and an internship (one semester at 510 hours per week). Staff positions are paid, and staff members typically work around 10 hours per week during the fall or spring semesters, more in the summer session.
Students who believe they may qualify for honors in Atmospheric Sciences should apply to the Mathematical Sciences Department during their last semester of study.


Additional Requirements  Students must complete at least 15 upperdivision (numbered 300 and above) credits in the major in residence at UWM.


GPA Requirements  The College requires that students attain at least a 2.000 GPA on all credits in the major, including any transfer work.
