UW-Green Bay is structured around an interdisciplinary framework and does not have typical "departments". Our academic budgetary units have control over resources and the responsibility to deliver the curriculum. Disciplinary units like Economics, Biology, Political Science, etc., do not have that kind of structural existence. While a major may exist in a given discipline, it fits within one of the 13 budgetary units and not in an independent department.
