Details of major declaration process:

Students interested in pursuing a major in Latin American and Latino studies are encouraged to read about our program here.

You are required to see the "other department" when declaring a combined major so that that department's advisor can help you with the courses needed on their side of the combined major, and sign to prove that you have completed their requirements to declare that major (check with them).

Once you are clear with the "other department", you then bring the forms to the LALS major declaration workshop, offered by Alessandra Álvares the undergraduate advisor in LALS.

To attend the workshop, you have to sign-up at the bulletin board outside of the LALS office, Merrill 32.

Major declaration workshops are held at the Charles E. Merrill Lounge, Merrill College.
