Although students can indicate to the dean's office as early as freshman year their intent of majoring in a particular discipline, students can delay declaring their majors until spring semester of their sophomore year. Because a language major begins at the 200-level, it is highly advisable to begin the study of a foreign language as soon as possible.

The declaration of major form can be used to develop a tentative curriculum plan to discuss with your advisor.
