Declaring Majors and Minors

Students in the College of Arts and Science must declare a major by midway through their fourth semester in residence.  For most students, this deadline is the Friday before Spring Break in the sophomore year. Students who have not declared a major by the deadline may not be able to enroll in classes for the following semester until they have submitted the proper forms.

Remember that students in the College of Arts and Science are required to declare only one major. Minors and second majors are optional.

For information about declaring majors and minors, including the Individually-Created Interdisciplinary Major, check out the detailed instructions in the Majors and Minors section of the College of Arts and Science website.  This page lists all the majors and minors offered by the College of Arts and Science.

**While you are welcome to discuss your ideas about majors and minors with us, note that CASPAR advisers do not sign these forms. Go to the department of your intended major/minor to obtain signatures.**
