Bachelor of Arts - Major

B.A. students, in consultation with the designated Department and/or Program advisor, must formally declare the particular field of study in which they wish to take their Major not later than the completion of sixty (60) credit hours.  For full-time students, this normally means by the end of their second year.

It is possible to declare a Double Major (i.e., two majors, one in each of two different subject areas).  It is also possible to declare a Minor as part of the Bachelor of Arts – Major degree program.
