In November, you’ll be able to officially declare your academic path for your undergraduate career through Major Declaration. It starts with exploring the various majors and minors that are offered at Case Western Reserve.

Exploration is a process, and the amount of time needed and strategies employed is going to vary from person to person. Focus on your personal needs, interests and goals. Even if you have a major firmly in mind you have much to gain from exploring other interests and the many experiential opportunities that will enhance your education outside the classroom.

Here are some tips to help:

  • Review the list of majors and minors. Learn about programs of interest by reading about them on the General Bulletin, reviewing department websites, or researching career interests using resources available from Post-Graduate Planning and Experiential Education.
  • Follow up with the departments if and when you’re prepared to seek additional information or formally declare your major or minor. Check out upcoming events designed to help you explore your interests.
  • Speak with your faculty academic advisor and develop a plan that will allow you to continue exploring your interests and clarifying your plans.

If you need additional assistance, your faculty academic advisor and navigator are always available to consult with you and point you in the right direction.
