A major at Millsaps is a specialized course of study required of all students, offering the opportunity to focus in depth on a particular discipline. It usually consists of 32-48 hours of course work specified by a particular department, in addition to the prescribed work for the degree. For more information on degree requirements, see the Millsaps College Catalog or consult your academic adviser.
Specific requirements for the major can be found under the appropriate department of instruction. Students may major in a subject only with the consent of the department chair. They are expected to declare a major by the end of the sophomore year. All work to be applied toward the major must be approved in advance by the department chair.
A student may have more than one major by completing all of the requirements in the departments involved.
