Pathway to Major and Minor
Declaration of Major/Minor
Students who choose to major or minor in the Department of Asian and Asian American Studies should complete a Declaration of Major/Minor form to be taken to their departmental program advisor for signature. The form will be signed by the advisor and the student will need to deliver the original to the Registrar’s office. A file will be prepared in the department for the student and the student will be directed to visit with the appropriate academic advisor.
All majors and minors in the Department of Asian and Asian American Studies are required to complete a Major or Minor checklist form to be presented to their program advisor at their first advising session. It is important that students visit with their advisor regularly until graduation in order to ensure that the necessary courses and credits are completed.
