We are the home for studying the natural word. CALS offers 22 majors in biological sciences, health sciences, environmental science and agricultural science. Many students continue their education in graduate school or enter professional schools in medicine or veterinary medicine. Other students pursue careers in biotechnology, conservation and recreation, communications, agriculture, human nutrition, animal health or public service.
The Office of Academic Affairs, in 116 Ag Hall, helps students navigate the possibilities and opportunities in CALS. It is our goal to help students be academically and personally successful on campus and beyond. Academic Affairs offers advising, professional development, and other services to enhance the overall experience of students at UW-Madison. We hope our students will visit us often and take advantage of our trainings and seminars.
Any CALS student needing assistance is welcome to meet with our “Dean On Call” available Monday – Wednesday, and Fridays, noon – 3:30pm during the academic year, or Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays, noon – 3:30pm during winter and summer session. Students are encouraged to drop by 116 Agricultural Hall to talk with a staff member or call 608-262-3003.
