Programs:

Programs and courses in the College of Arts and Sciences expose students to the substance and methodology of disciplines in the humanities, arts, natural sciences, and social sciences. Our core values include providing students with opportunities to develop intellectual skills such as analysis, synthesis, critical thinking, and application; strengthen communication skills and abilities; enhance aesthetic appreciation and humanistic understanding; and develop breadth and depth of perspective about the human experience and the natural world. Such skills and attributes are essential for success in any career or profession, as well as for leading lives as engaged, informed, and productive citizens. The largest and most broadly based academic unit at the University, the College of Arts and Sciences comprises 18 departments and several interdisciplinary programs that contribute courses and experiences for students majoring in programs based in the college; extensive liberal education course work; and supporting courses for academic programs in other colleges and for pre-professional programs.

Placement and Competency Information

Placement and Competency Tests

The UW System Mathematics Placement Test and the Foreign Language Placement Tests are given during the orientation periods for new freshmen and transfers. Further information about placement or competency tests is available from the chair of the appropriate department or the Registrar’s Office.

Registration Requirements

  1. All students in the College of Arts and Sciences (undeclared students, students with a declared Arts and Sciences major, or pre-professional students) must successfully complete the University Writing Requirement.  This requirement should be completed by the semester in which their total semester credits will equal or surpass 60 credits.
  2. All students in the College of Arts and Sciences (undeclared students, students with a declared Arts and Sciences major, or pre-professional students) must successfully complete the appropriate Mathematics Competency requirement for the baccalaureate degree program being pursued.  This requirement should be completed by the semester in which their total semester credits will equal or surpass 60 credits.
  3. All students who have not completed the Bachelor of Science Mathematics Competency will be considered Bachelor of Arts candidates and must demonstrate competency in a foreign language at the level of a 102 course (i.e., two semesters of college work).  This requirement should be completed by the semester in which their total semester credits will equal or surpass 60 credits.
  4. All students who transfer to UW-Eau Claire with 59 or fewer earned semester credit hours should meet the appropriate requirements listed in 1, 2, and 3 above as appropriate before registering for any semester or session after they have earned 60 semester credit hours including credits in progress.
  5. All students who transfer to UW-Eau Claire with 60 or more earned semester credit hours and who intend to register as a student in the College of Arts and Sciences (undeclared students, students with a declared Arts and Sciences major, or pre-professional students) should meet the requirements listed in 1, 2, and 3 before registering for any semester or summer session.

Planning a Degree Program

To officially declare or change to a new major, minor, or certificate, a student must go to the Advising, Retention + Career Center.

All students are encouraged to obtain a new degree audit during this process. Academic and faculty advisors will be assigned as appropriate.

Joint Degrees with Professional Schools

The Board of Regents has authorized the University to grant the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree to students who have completed three years of residence at UW-Eau Claire and who complete the requirements for a Liberal Arts degree after transfer to a professional school. A maximum of 32 semester credits from the professional school may be applied toward the baccalaureate degree. For information, contact the College of Arts and Sciences Dean's office (Schofield 220).

Dean’s List

At the end of each semester, the College of Arts and Sciences recognizes excellence in scholastic achievement by publishing the Dean’s List. To be eligible, a student must:

  1.  be in good academic standing;
  2. have a minimum semester GPA of 3.70;
  3. have completed at least 12 credits during the semester, with no incompletes, no courses below the 100 level, no repeats, and no Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory registrations (except in degree credit-bearing courses that are offered only on the S/U grading system in which a grade of S has been earned).

Students who meet this standard of achievement receive personal letters of notification and congratulations from the Dean.

Special Curricular Offerings

Special Topics Courses (291, 491)

Under the numbers 291 and 491, several departments and interdisciplinary programs offer courses in which the topic for study may vary from semester to semester, often focusing on a contemporary issue or taking an innovative approach to a traditional subject. Students and faculty members are invited to recommend topics to appropriate departments/programs. Departments/programs provide basic course information as part of the schedule building process. Topics are announced in the Class Schedule for the semester.

Restrictions: A total of no more than nine credits in Special Topics courses (291, 491) may be applied toward graduation. Special Topics courses may not be applied toward completion of the Liberal Education Core requirements. Departments may further restrict the application of such credits to their majors and minors.

Directed Studies (395, 495)

Courses numbered 395 or 495 (and MUSI 496), offered by several departments and interdisciplinary programs under various titles, are designed to permit individual students or groups of students to undertake special projects related to their educational interests and goals.

Eligibility: Registration for a Directed Studies course requires the permission of the faculty member who agrees to supervise the project and of the department/program offering the course. Any further conditions of eligibility are established by the department/program and published as part of the course description.

Restrictions: A total of no more than six credits of Directed Study courses may be counted toward graduation. Directed Study courses may not be applied toward completion of the Liberal Education Core requirements. Departments/programs also may restrict the application of such credits to their majors, minors, and certificates.

Procedures: Registration is initiated through an e-form found on the Registrar's Office website.  Approval is required by the professor directing the study and the department chair/program director.  When registration has been completed, the Registrar’s Office will file a copy of the project description with the College Dean and in the student’s permanent record.

Independent Study (399, 499)

Under the course numbers 399 and 499 (and CHEM 497 and HIST 496), departments and interdisciplinary programs in the College of Arts and Sciences provide advanced students with opportunities for independent study in fields where they have already demonstrated their competence.

Eligibility: Independent Study courses are open only to juniors or seniors. A student with a departmental major and/or minor may elect an Independent Study in the department of the major or of the minor, provided the student has at least 3.00 resident and total GPAs in that department. A student with an interdisciplinary major may elect an Independent Study in any department/program which has courses required in the major, provided the student has resident and total GPAs of at least 3.00 in the major and has earned a minimum of six credits with resident and total GPAs of at least 3.00 in the department/program in which the Independent Study is elected.

Restrictions: Only three credits of Independent Study (399 or 499; CHEM 497; HIST 496) may be elected during any semester. A total of no more than six independent study credits may be counted toward graduation. Independent Study courses may not be applied toward completion of the Liberal Education Core requirements.

Procedures: Registration is initiated through an e-form found on the Registrar's Office website.  Approval is required by the professor directing the study and the department chair/program director. When registration has been completed, the Registrar’s Office will file a copy of the project description with the College Dean and in the student’s permanent record.
