Declaring a major is one of the simplest ways of making your university experience better.
You will become eligible for the many department awards and scholarships that faculty and department heads award to their own students . It’s the same as the lottery … If you don’t buy a ticket, you can’t win.
You will get priority in class enrollment . Makes sense, doesn’t it? You don’t get something for nothing. Like Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs, “Quid pro quo, Clarice, quid pro quo.”
You will be able to shape a quality university experience for yourself . Let’s face it - the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is a big place. By declaring a major in a certain department, you have a home base. And by developing relationships with other students and faculty members you’ll enhance both your personal and future professional life, wherever that takes you.
You will have made a decision to study what you love . And by doing that you are taking control of your own life … we know it’s scary but most worthwhile things in life are. (And you can always change your mind!)
That’s it. You’re done. And thanks for making a decision. You won’t regret it.
