L&S Advanced Coursework Requirements

The following section explains the minimum upper level coursework requirement in the major(s) for L&S undergraduate students.

All Letters & Science undergraduate students must complete/earn a minimum of 15 credits of advanced coursework (designated by the major department) in their major(s) or major department in residence.  For L&S undergraduates, "in residence" refers to coursework completed on the UW-Madison campus with an undergraduate degree classification (e.g., BA, BS, BSW, JBA, JBS, etc.).  No exceptions may be made to this requirement under any circumstances even with a departmental recommendation.   For more information about upper-level work in the major, see Mastery of Upper-Level Work in the Major in the Undergraduate Catalog.
