Sample Four Year Plan

There are hundreds of courses that satisfy various requirements, and courses in the major can be used. or example, Math 231 counts towards the major, Natural Science GER, and the Quantitative Literacy Part B requirement. (This sample assumes no high school Foreign Language was taken and that the student placed into college-level Math and English.)

This sample four-year plan shows just one possible pathway to earning a degree with this major in four years. This plan does not replace the advice of your advisor, and students are cautioned to meet regularly with their advisor to create a personalized plan that matches their particular circumstances. This plan also follows the degree requirements for students who began their UWM education in Fall of 2013 or later. If you started at UWM prior to Fall of 2013, your degree requirements may be different.

To clarify any degree requirements, please contact the Applied Mathematics & Computer Science Program Coordinator.
