Declaration of Major/Certificate


The Certificate in Digital Arts and Culture is open to all students seeking a bachelor’s degree from UWM, to those who previously received a bachelor’s degree from UWM or any other accredited college or university, and to those who do not plan to pursue a college or university degree (non-degree students) but who have a strong interest in this area of study. To be admitted to the university as non-degree students, individuals must meet regular university admission requirements.
