Doctoral students in another UW–Madison program who desire a doctoral minor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction should seek and enlist a faculty member in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction to serve as their doctoral minor advisor. Twelve credits are required for a doctoral minor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. At least 6 of these credits must be in substantive, graduate-level courses taken in the UW–Madison Department of Curriculum and Instruction. (Substantive, graduate-level courses excludes credits earned through independent reading, independent study, research, and thesis.) With the approval of the minor advisor, the remaining 6 credits may be met through an approved transfer of credits in substantive, graduate-level courses completed at other institutions. A maximum of 3 credits of the total 12-credit minor requirement may be met through graduate-level independent reading done in the UW–Madison Department of Curriculum and Instruction.
