Select majors offer specializations which students have the option to declare. A specialization consists of at least 9 hours in a concentrated field of a student's major field. Please check the Undergraduate Bulletin to see if your major offers a specialization. Working with their academic advisors, students are encouraged to identify a specialization in their second or third year of study in order to plan the appropriate sequence of courses. If you would like to declare one, please fill out the Specialization Declaration form.
