Majors Offered in The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Related Academic Plans

This page is updated at the beginning of each catalog year. Please contact the CLAS Academic Advising Center or the major department for the most up-to-date information on the majors and minors below. 

This information below is provided for preliminary guidance in choosing a major. The plans by themselves are not sufficient for effectively planning your undergraduate program. Please make an appointment with your faculty advisor in your major, or a professional advisor in the CLAS Academic Advising Center in order to more fully understand the nature and requirements of any of these majors.

The requirements for a major are tied to your catalog year (the academic year you started at GVSU). Please make sure that when you are viewing requirements they are those for your particular catalog year.
