Majors, Minors, and Areas of Study

Welcome to a brand new year! I hope your semester is starting off beautifully.

You may have noticed the new website launched a little more than a week ago. While several things changed with this new version, I would like to bring your attention to the majors, minors, and areas of study site at http://www.umw.edu/study/. We’ve worked all summer to build a consistent, centralized, prospective student friendly space for our academic offering information. Now that we have established a solid baseline from which to move forward, we are very much looking forward to working with faculty to polish this very important work in progress.

Where did this information come from?

Source material was compiled from department and program websites, print materials, admissions content and the academic catalog.

What do I do if something is inaccurate?

Please communicate that to us. You can submit details to us at http://www.umw.edu/study/suggestions/.

Why is my major/minor missing?

All of the pages are in development, we simply ran out of time before the launch. Everything will be represented as soon as possible. To expedite the process (and give you an opportunity to help shape the message) I encourage you to submit answers to the questions at http://www.umw.edu/study/suggestions/.

Can I submit supplemental information or ideas for further development?

Absolutely. There is an “other” field on http://www.umw.edu/study/suggestions/. Feel free to include anything you feel is relevant.

I appreciate your support as we work to answer the question, for every academic offering, “Why study X at UMW?”
