Beginning with the Class of 2015, Declaring a Major is part of the overall Sophomore Planning Process. Before preregistration ends in the spring of your sophomore year, you will be expected to choose a major subject. Then, in consultation with the departmental major advisor, you will decide upon an appropriate sequence of major courses and complete your on-line Major Work Plan. Many resources are available to assist you in choosing a major. For more information, please consult the Sophomore Planning Process.
Students who entered Bryn Mawr before the Fall of 2011 should have already declared their major. We are providing the major work plan form in cases where such students are changing their majors.
Major Subjects: Each department's pages within the catalog present its academic focus and summarize the requirements for the major. Department websites will also include this information, along with supplemental materials that will give you a more in-depth view of the field. You should read these materials for all the departments you are considering.
Majoring at Haverford: Soon after spring break, Bryn Mawr sophomores will receive information from the Haverford deans that outlines the procedures for declaring a major at Haverford.
If you are debating between the Bryn Mawr and Haverford departments in a particular field, be sure to talk with faculty members and declared majors in each department.
