Don't Be Afraid to Declare!

Sometimes a good way to evaluate the major or minor is to “try it on”—declare, integrate yourself into the department, and see if it’s the right fit. You can certainly change majors if you later realize a different field is a better fit for you.

You can declare anytime during your first year or sophomore year. Explore the options below and if you are considering a particular major, go visit the department!
