Majors for Williams Honors College students

There are many paths to and options in choosing a major. Some students begin knowing exactly what they want, while many others are unsure.

Some options you could choose include: "divisional" majors in the College of Arts & Sciences; double major; have multiple minors or supplement your major with one of the many university certificate programs.

If you:

  • Know your major: As part of the Honors College, you are directly admitted to the college of your choice.
  • Are undecided: You will be classified as "undecided" in the college of your choice until you are ready to declare your major.
  • Want to change your major: You will need to report to the office of the dean or director of your college or school as well as inform the Honors College office of your decision.
