Majors in the Bachelor of Arts program are normally declared in the student's fourth semester. When the time for your declaration of major approaches, you will be notified by the Dean of Arts & Sciences. The departments and programs offering majors will have scheduled information sessions which you should attend if at all possible. A major is declared by conferring with the Chair of the department and getting the Chair's signature on the major declaration card issued to you by the Dean.

The Chair will review the department curriculum with you, discuss your interests and experience, and assign you to an advisor within the department. As soon as possible, and before the end of spring preregistration, you should confer with your new advisor about your major program.
