Frequently Asked Questions

When do I have to declare my major?

Although students have two academic years to declare a major they are strongly encouraged to do so in their second or third semester, and before finishing the sophomore year, so that they can meet all major specific degree requirements in a timely fashion.

Will it take me longer to graduate than my peers with declared majors?

Students who are active participants in the advising process do not generally take longer to graduate than their peers.

Can I do an internship without declaring my major?

No. An internship presents an opportunity to practice your field of study and is a requirement for your major.  However, it is possible to engage in Connected Learning opportunities related to the field of study in foundational courses for all majors.

Is it a good idea to complete my Core Curriculum before deciding on a major?

Due to the developmental nature of our Core Curriculum and our majors, prolonging a decision will delay graduation.
