Sub-Major Policy

Policy Statement

  1. A minor course of study should be a minimum of 18 credits, including at least nine upper-division credits and nine credits taken at UW-Platteville.
  2. A transcripted certificate should be 12-15 credits and is only transcripted upon completion of a degree program.
  3. We appear to use the terms track, concentration and emphasis interchangeably. All of these, as areas of emphasis within a major course of study, should be emphases. They must be within a major course of study. The core of a major course of study are a set of courses that create a shared foundation shared by all students in the major.
  4. These definitions should not apply retroactively, but all future changes to sub-majors should conform to these definitions.
