Majors and Minors

Majors

Students may declare a major after the completion of the second semester, but no later than the fourth semester of residence. Students declaring a major in one of the recognized fields apply to the appropriate department or program for assignment to an adviser. Students who wish to develop an interdisciplinary major must first meet with a dean.

The selection of a major is quite important and is a requirement for completion of the degree. To assist in the selection process, the College of Arts and Science sponsors a majors fair every fall semester where students can familiarize themselves with the requirements for individual majors.

Students officially declare their majors by registering with the Arts and Science Registrar's office, as well as with the chosen department(s) or an interdisciplinary adviser approved by the dean.

Double and Triple Majors

Students may choose to concentrate in two or three major fields. Each A&S non-interdisciplinary major must include at least 24 credit hours that are being counted solely toward the major.

Minors

Students may declare a minor after the completion of the second semester, but no later than the beginning of the final semester of residence. Students may combine a minor with any major, but each minor must include at least 15 credit hours that are being counted solely toward the minor.

Students officially declare their minors by registering with the Arts and Science Registrar's office, as well as with the chosen department(s). A minor is not required to earn the degree. Students have the responsibility to know and satisfy all requirements for any declared minor. The Director of Undergraduate Studies of the department offering the minor is a good source of information if students have any questions.
