Overview

A CIM major is best suited for the student who has a very particular, well-defined interest, not currently offered within one of our majors. The topic must be broad enough to be able to build a series of existing classes around the theme, yet specific enough to be able to create a thoroughly researched and comprehensive research project around.

Students in the CIM will need to be proactive in order to form a committee of three faculty members who will approve and supervise the topic, courses, and research project designed by the student.

Programme Structure

The Committee Interdisciplinary Major requires a minimum of 30 credits, of which at least 15 must be in upper-division Letters and Science (L&S) courses numbered 300 or above taken at UWM. The CIM must include coursework from at least two different L&S departments. Up to 12 credits in the major can be from other Schools and Colleges at UWM, but these credits do not count towards the 90 L&S credits required to earn an L&S degree.
