About Major Discovery Week

Major Discovery Week (MDW) is an opportunity for academic programs and departments to connect with many students in a short amount of time. For students who are exploring majors and certificates, it’s a great opportunity to meet you online and learn about the academic requirements and opportunities your department/program has to offer. MDW is also an effective way for your department to recruit students and promote your events. 

More than 700 students attended the previous event, the in-person 2019 Majors Fair at Union South. A record number of departments and programs participated from all eight undergraduate schools and colleges, representing nearly every UW-Madison major and many of the certificate programs. We hope that just as many (or more!) departments and programs participate at our Spring 2021 virtual event.
