Academic Major Meeting

The virtual academic major meetings are an opportunity for students, decided and undecided, to meet representatives from various colleges and departments to learn about majors at College of Charleston - their courses, their structure and their sequencing. 

There is also an opportunity for undecided students to learn about resources available to help them select a major.   

Students will receive information that is vital to their advising and registration for fall classes.  We encourage students to attend different meeting so they can learn about all their options.  Students can declare their major online before or after orientation if they are interested.   

Various majors have created additional resources for students to review on the additional information page
