Major Academic Plans (MAPs)

What is a Major Academic Plan (MAP)?

A MAP is a guide that shows you the recommended sequence of classes for a major. As you consider your major at Wheaton, the following links help you review what a major might look like. These Major Academic Plans (MAPs) show a preferred sequencing of courses from first year through graduation. However, your path may vary depending on the credits you bring into Wheaton College and your path toward declaring a major.

We recommend using the table below to compare different MAPs to help you envision what your liberal arts experience might look like.  Here is a blank MAP Worksheet you can download and use to plan out your semesters.

(Note that all courses on Major Academic Plans are 4-credit courses unless otherwise noted.)

Here is an Overview of Academics at Wheaton to help you stay on track!
