Students are required to declare their major by the time they have completed the first 45 credits of their degree. Many students arrive at Lewis & Clark completely undecided, many have some ideas, many say they already know what they will major in. Regardless of which of these categories you fit into, we encourage you to explore our curriculum in your first year.
Note: Transfer and/or Advanced Standing credits count toward the 128 credits required for graduation, so students reach the 45 credit mark of their degree at varying points in their first or second year. Current students may consult the “Current Earned” column on their Program Evaluation in WebAdvisor to see how many credits they have completed.
Interested in hearing from CAC advisors and a current student about finding a major, declaring, and how your major will shape your time at LC? Check out the Declaration of Major webinar, recorded 10/4/21.
