Majors & Minors


Several majors require an application; almost all have prerequsites. Be sure to check both (see links below) BEFORE you select your third semester classes so you are well aware of the classes you need to take and the application deadline. If you have, questions, contact the relevant Director of the Undergraduate Program.
Below is a list of the available undergraduate degree programs offered by the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Virginia, including majors, minors and Distinguished Majors Programs. Items that appear indented below a UVA A&S program name are concentrations or other available degrees in that program.
To declare a major complete the following steps.
  1. Go to 101 Monroe Hall and pick up a Declaration of Major Form.
  2. Take the form to the department or program in which you plan to declare a major and ask to meet the Director of the Undergraduate Program or an advisor.
  3. The department will send the completed form to the College Registrar in Monroe Hall 138; most departments will allow you to deliver the form yourself directly to Monroe Hall 138.

All non-College of Arts & Sciences students are limited to only one major and/or one minor in the College.
