Undergraduate Advising Heads

Undergraduate Advising Heads (UAH) are faculty advisors within the various majors and minors. These faculty are a wonderful resource as you are exploring different majors and minors and they can help you better understand how the curriculum of a particular major is structured and what you would need to do to major in that field.

You will ultimately meet with the appropriate UAH to officially declare your major. Download the request form (PDF) for more information on declaring a major or minor.
