Typically in April, at the end of your first year, you will be expected to indicate which program you would like to specialize your degree in. There are many options and combinations, and the full instructions, with dates and deadlines can be accessed at the Faculty of Arts & Science website. It’s a great idea to look ahead when making first year course selections to see if any of the programs of study you are interested in have entrance requirements which you would need to achieve in first year. Once you’ve made your selection, you can login to ACORN during the registration window and select your program. Please see this webpage for further information and instructions.

Degree Explorer will show your progress in your program and is also a great resource to access when you are planning your degree requirements. Log in to Degree Explorer.
