Major-Minor Fair

Join us October 25-28 to learn more about potential majors and minors.

Each fall, the College holds a Major-Minor Fair, where students can talk to faculty members and get more information on many majors and minors at one time and in one place.

As we move the Major-Minor Fair online, this year’s event will look a little different, but it will be the same great experience of discovering possibilities and making connections.

The Major-Minor Fair will be held via Zoom over four days from October 25-28. Each day will feature programs from one of our three divisions or our campus partners important in the life of the major. Some Zoom links require registration, those will be noted in the list below. We encourage you to register for any events you plan on attending or are interested in attending. Other Zoom links do not require registration. 

At the Major-Minor Fair, you can:

  • Gather information about majors and minors in Arts & Sciences
  • Learn about second majors and minors in other divisions
  • Meet important faculty and staff in those fields
  • Get information related to the major from the Career Center, Overseas Programs Office, Library and the Office of Undergraduate Research

See the schedule below to register in advance for any and all majors and minors of interest. All programs listed have a major and minor, except those listed as a minor.

For more information on declaring your major, visit the Major Declaration website.

How to Use the Major-Minor Fair

Know Yourself

Ask yourself, what piques my interest and brings me joy? What calls to me?

Know the Options

Ask programs, what are advanced course requirements? Do you have concentrations or tracks? What kind of research, internships, and study abroad options do you have? How can I find out more?

Test the Fit

Ask departments, what courses, events, sites and people can you seek out to learn more and try out the program? Above all, ask yourself, who and what resonates with me?
