Majors and Minors
Students declare a major at the beginning of the freshman year and are assigned a faculty advisor within that department. The core curriculum that governs all majors in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences makes it easy for students to change majors without penalty to other departments within the school.
A minor is a program within a recognized area of knowledge offering students more than a casual introduction to the area but less than a major in it. Each minor includes at least 15 credit hours. Minors may be combined with any departmental major. A student who completes all designated courses in a minor with a grade point average of at least 2.0 will have the minor entered on the transcript at the time of graduation.
