Declaring a major is part of the overall Sophomore Planning Process.
Before preregistration ends in the spring of
your sophomore year, you will be expected to
choose a major subject. You will create a Major Work Plan (in your
BIONIC Student Center) and review with your departmental major adviser.
Many resources are available to
assist you in choosing a major. For more information, please consult the Sophomore Planning Process.
Each department's pages within the catalog present its academic focus and summarize the requirements for the
major. Department websites will also include this information,
along with supplemental materials that will give you a more in-depth
view of the field. You should read these materials for all the
departments you are considering.
Departments will also hold Major Teas each semester. These information sessions are opportunities to meet faculty and student majors in a department and learn more about the field of study.
Dorms open for returning students at 9:00am
