Transfer Planning Guide: Klingler College of Arts and Sciences

With 14 academic departments offering over 40 majors and minors, the Klingler College of Arts & Sciences is the largest college at Marquette University. The College of Arts and Sciences provides undergraduate and graduate programs in interdisciplinary studies, the humanities, natural sciences and social sciences.

In addition to the recommended transferrable coursework listed here, all majors in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, but especially those in the humanities and social sciences, require a large selection of electives. All coursework that transfers to Marquette will count toward the overall credit requirement if not the major. (For example, the history major only requires 33 credits, criminology & law studies 42 credits, psychology 53 credits, etc.) Humanities and social science majors will not be behind if they only transfer one or two courses in the major.

Students planning to transfer to Marquette's Klingler College of Arts and Sciences should use the charts below to fill their pre-Marquette semesters with courses that will transfer into their chosen field of interest.
