Admissions & Aid
Declaring your major is an important step in your academic career, and Brooklyn College offers more than 70 undergraduate programs for you to choose from. As you make your plans, please keep in mind the major declaration deadlines on the academic calendar.
On your admissions application, you may have selected a major that requires an additional step to be officially declared. If you have applied for any of the majors listed below, follow the Change Major/Minor instructions below to re-declare your major. Without re-declaration, you will not be allowed to graduate with your selected major.
