The department has a number of Academic Advisors who are able to help you sort through degree requirements, talk about career options, and help you navigate to other university resources.



Note: Curriclum changes: Students can declare their major in September (or re-declare) to take advantage of the new curriculum changes.  

Students are bound to the general arts requirements/degree requirements for the year in which they enrolled. They are bound to the major requirements of the year in which they declare—but are able to declare their major at any time (or re-declare in the event that they want to change their major) and take advantage of the requirements of that particular year.
