Information Sessions

Prior to declaring the major, students must attend an information session. Information sessions are designed for Current U of I students interested in adding or changing a Global Studies major, minor, or certificate. These sessions are held frequently throughout the semester, and especially during change of major periods. During the information session, students can submit the paperwork to officially change or add the major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Once students have attended an Information Session, they are welcome to schedule an individual appointment with an advisor.
