Majors

Your major is your primary field of study, such as architecture, geography, etc. Your major program requirements are described in your academic division chapter of this Bulletin. For example, requirements for a degree in geography are listed in the College of Arts and Science section. All majors are listed in the General Information chapter.

Although you do not need to choose a major when you enroll, you are required to choose a division. In most cases, if you use your first year to take courses that fulfill a part of the Miami Plan and divisional requirements, you can still complete a major with no delay. To declare your major, after taking classes for a semester or more, request a change/declaration of major form from your divisional office, complete the information, and have your department chair sign. When you return it to your divisional office, your program information is transferred to your academic records.
