Undergraduate Academic Program Summaries

The program summary is the guide used to determine what courses, and associated requirements, you will need to take in order to earn a degree at Western Connecticut State University. These program summaries are intended for individuals who are interested in attending WCSU or students who are interested in changing majors.

Archived Program Summaries/Sheets can be found on the menu to the left.

 

Helpful tips:

  • Current students should view their audit in Degree Works for up to date information.
  • The Program Summaries provide example 4-year plans. These are just suggestions. A student should create their plan based on their own strengths and interests. Please consult your advisor if you want to adjust your plan.
  • Freshman students should make sure they have looked over their program summary and checked in with their advisor.
  • Transfer students with more than 30 transfer credits should consult the program summary along with the evaluation that was issued you by Admissions.
  • If your current major institutes significant changes to your program and develops a new Program Summary you have the option of using either the new or your current program summary – check with your department which option is best for you.
