The Undeclared designation in the School of Humanities & Social Sciences (HSS) is designed for those students who are not ready to declare a major but are interested in one or more programs within HSS. Undeclared students choose courses that fulfill requirements in the Liberal Learning Curriculum as well as courses in areas they are interested in exploring as possible majors. Any students this this designation should address all questions to the Associate Dean of HSS.
We are offering a special Undeclared program in Fall 2020. These students will focus on issues of social justice with a focus on careers that serve the public good. The goal is for these students to enter majors within the School of Humanities and Social Science that emphasize public service.
The following are the standards for the Undeclared in Humanities and Social Sciences designation:
- Students cannot transfer within the College into the Undeclared designation
- Students may remain as Undeclared in the Humanities and Social Sciences no longer than the second semester of their sophomore year.
- Undeclared students who are unable to make significant progress toward a major by the end of their sophomore year will become “UNDESIGNATED TRANSITIONAL” students.
- In rare cases students may remain Undeclared beyond the second semester of their sophomore year if they have shown significant progress toward a major or self-designed major.
