The James Madison College curriculum is made up of University requirements, College requirements, Major requirements, and electives. Most students complete about 30 credits per year. About half of these credits are taken in Madison classes taught by Madison faculty. The remainder come from a variety of other colleges and departments on campus. For a more detailed look at requirements for each individual major, please check the student handbook.
