At Nazareth, you do not have to select a major until the end of your sophomore year. Some majors do require a decision earlier than that, but generally the first two years can be a time of exploration, reflection, and self-evaluation. We encourage undeclared students to use this time to think about their interests and goals. During this time, you can also take courses that fulfill Core requirements and expose you to a wide variety of areas of study.
Declaring Or Changing A Major
Students who are changing or declaring a major must complete a Declaration or Change of Major form. This form must be approved by the department chair of the desired major and returned to the AAC.
To learn more about majors and minors available at Nazareth, refer to the Academic Programs section of the Undergraduate Catalog.
Each semester, the AAC offers a one-credit course available to freshmen and sophomores; CDL101: Exploring Self, Majors and Career.
The Career Services Office offers resources for students, including computer software programs that help you pinpoint possible careers and majors that match your interests.
Individual appointments can also be made with your academic advisor or an Academic Counselor in the Academic Advisement Center to discuss major and/or career choices.
