This course aims to foster a sense of belonging, promote engagement in the academic life of the university, provide fundamental knowledge and skill sets essential for success at UAH, and articulate to students the expectations of the University. In addition, the course will assist students to develop and apply critical thinking skills and help students to clarify their academic goals and eventual career direction. This course is mandatory for all freshman students and is determined by the college of their major.

Declaring a Major

When applying to enter UAH, prospective students may declare a major, defined as the primary field of study. Required major semester hours vary by program but typically range from 30-45 semester hours with overall degree requirements ranging from 120-143 semester hours. Some students are not yet decided and may declare "undecided". The Colleges of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, Honors, Professional Studies, Science, and Nursing assign advisors. Undecided students will be advised by the Exploratory Advisor, Kellee Crawford, in Wilson Hall, room 143. For information on how to declare a major in the Colleges of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, Honors, Professional Studies, Science, and Nursing contact the advising office of the college or visit the advising website.

Minors

Typical minors are offered in all major fields of study and require a minimum of 18 semester hours of work, six of which are at the 300/400 level and must be completed at UAH. Students should consult their advisors and the appropriate subject area portions of the catalog. 

Many degree programs that have extensive core requirements for majors do not have a minor component. Students, however, may opt to add a minor to their programs of study. Again, students should work closely with their advisors in constructing their programs of study for timely completion of their degrees.
