How to Declare a Major

 
Download the Ed Studies major declaration worksheet to understand our requirements: 5 core courses, 4 in a
thematic concentration, and 3 additional electives, for a total of 12.
 
Explore how to fulfill requirements with the list of Ed Studies and cross-listed courses.
Since students do not know exactly which courses will be offered more than a year in advance,
identify those that interest you and mark the semester as "TBA" if needed.
 
Schedule a meeting with Professor Andrea Dyrness, who currently directs the Ed Studies Program,
to review your plans and learn more about your options, including dual majors and study-away semesters.
 
Draft your proposal in a word-processing document, following the format of the samples on the second
page of the worksheet above. When the Director approves your proposal, a printed copy will be attached
to your major declaration form to submit to the Registrar, and a digital copy will be kept by you and
the Director to update for future advising meetings as new course schedules become available.
