Undeclared Option

The Undeclared Option is available to students who choose not to declare a major when they first arrive at Lasell College. At Lasell, advisors work closely with students exploring options, interests, and possible career paths. In their first two years, students in the Undeclared Option are required to take courses satisfying the foundational competencies of the General Education Core. They are also advised to register for courses under the Areas of Inquiry in Core, as well as to enroll in introductory courses in those majors that may be of interest to them.

Students are encouraged to meet with faculty in order to explore different majors and their career possibilities. Some of the majors have specific admissions criteria, such as math or science competencies. Advisors will discuss these requirements with students as they help them to prepare for a major of choice.

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