Declaring a Major in the College of Letters & Science
How do I declare a major in L&S?
To undeclare a major, a student must go to the major department to speak with the undergraduate advisor or the appointed person in the department to assist the student in undeclaring the major through the UW-Madison Student Information System (SIS).
Some majors have limited enrolled so students must apply via application. Entrance to these majors is competitive which means that not all students will necessarily be accepted even if they have minimum qualifications. See the Guide for more detail information about the application or declaration process. Students can find information about declaring a major in L&S under the How to Get in tab for each L&S undergraduate major, special degree program, or certificate.
