Degree Planning - 2019-2020

To view previous years, please visit the Degree Planning page.

The 2019-2020 Materials for Degree Planning are currently in development.  If documents for a major you are interested in are not linked, then please check back as documents are still being added.

These pages include links to information about all majors offered by USM.  Information includes the department web page, requirement list, check sheet, academic map, and Major 2 Career handouts for each major. Note that links to each of these options may not be used by all majors.

The Academic Map is a suggested plan toward your ultimate graduation. Course sequencing in your personal plan may vary depending upon course availability, full or part-time status, transfer credits, etc. It is recommended you use these documents as a guide and use the Blank Academic Map (link below) to create your own unique graduation plan in consultation with your professional and faculty advisors. Every best effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this tool.  The Academic Catalog documents the official requirements.
