In addition to the University Core Curriculum and College of Arts and Sciences (if applicable) requirements, students must complete a total of 14 courses to complete the major. Exceptions for students entering the department after their junior year will be made by the department chair.
When you declare the major, the department chair will review with you the courses you have taken that will fulfill the requirements and which courses you will need to take to complete the major. You will also declare an emphasis and be assigned a new advisor.
