Fine Arts - Art Majors, Four-Year Plan

Below is a sample degree plan that can be used as a guide to identify courses required to fulfill the major and other requirements needed for degree completion. The following is only an example and represents a possible course sequence for first-year students entering UW-Platteville in the fall term.  A student's actual degree plan may differ depending on the course of study selected (emphasis, second major, minor, etc.), placement scores, and incoming credits (transfer, AP, etc.).  Students should consult their program advisor(s) to ensure that they have the most accurate and up-to-date information available about a particular four-year degree option.

This sample plan assumes readiness for each course and/or major plan.  Some courses may not be offered every term.  All courses may not be available at all campuses and/or in all formats.

Students should use the Academic Advisement Report (AAR) in PASS and work closely with their advisor(s) to ensure completion of all requirements in a timely manner.
