Most Husson students declare their intended major when applying for admission to the University. Students may, however, choose to defer their declaration of a major until the end of the first year of study. For those students, Husson provides a basic first-year curriculum composed of general education and foundation courses. The student develops a schedule in conjunction with an academic advisor from Academic Services. Subsequent approval of first-year courses for transfer into a degree program rests with the School or academic department offering the degree.
