Declaring a Major

VSB students are required to select a major during their sophomore year. To assist students in this process, the Clay Center at VSB offers advising and programs throughout the year, including the VSB Majors Forum, the VSB Majors Fair, the Academic Resource Fair, and Major Mondays, which provide students with opportunities to gather information from faculty members and upperclass students. Additionally, students are encouraged to contact individual faculty members or department chairs to discuss the relationship between academic programs and personal and professional goals.

Double Majors

After initially declaring a major during sophomore year, VSB students may add a second major or change a major or minor by completing an online Change of Major/Minor form. The additional courses required for the second major must be fulfilled before a degree is granted.
