Declaring Your Major/Minor

Transfer students have less time to decide on an academic major or interdisciplinary program at Lang. You should clarify the particular requirements for your area of study, and determine what requirements have been satisfied through transfer courses and what requirements remain. You should also take into consideration you academic passions, post-graduate plans, and personal interests when deciding on an area of study. To explore all these connections, you should speak with an advisor, the chairperson for your area of study, or a faculty member teaching in your area of study.

Please note, requirements are somewhat based on the date of your declaration. If you earned fewer than 45 credits at the time of declaration, you should fulfill all the requirements in effect at that time. If you earned 45 credits or more, you are allowed to fulfill either the requirements in effect at the time of declaration or the requirements in effect at the time you matriculated at Lang. This only pertains to majors or interdisciplinary programs in which the curriculum has changed during the time of your enrollment; so for most students, this guideline is not relevant.
