The program requirements displayed in Degree Works were built from department approved degree maps.  Degree maps are sample 8-semester plans of study that outline how a full-time student could complete a Bachelor’s Degree in four years for their intended major.  Degree maps for all Purdue Calumet majors can be found in the online Academic Catalog.
