Declaring a Major or Minor

To declare a major or minor in the School of Science and Engineering you must contact the appropriate departmental office.

The Major/Minor Declaration Form requires the approval of the Department Chair. When declaring your major you will receive a Major Advisor to help schedule your Major and/or Minor course requirements. The signed major/minor declaration form must be turned in to the student's Newcomb-Tulane advisor. Students who choose to pursue a double major need to fulfill requirements for both majors and also take enough courses to have 18 non-overlapping courses. Check with each of your major advisors to determine any additional restrictions (e.g., some majors do not count some courses in the list of non-overlapping courses). Twenty-four credits in the major may not overlap with the minor. No courses counting towards one minor will count towards a second minor. Students must earn a GPA of at least 2.000 in courses counting towards the major or minor.
