Meet Your Major

All first year students and new transfer students are required to attend the mandatory Meet Your Major sessions on Monday, September 26, 2016 from 11 am-12 pm. This is an opportunity to connect with the faculty in your chosen major, go over the academic requirements within that major, learn more about the advising process and meet your faculty advisor while gathering important information about departmental happenings.

Room assignments for Meet your Major are listed below:

All students who attend will be entered into a drawing to win an iPad Mini as well as other prizes.

  • Theatre students have a separate series of workshops coordinated by the theatre department and do not need to participate in Meet your Major day.
  • Undeclared students will have a special session coordinated by the interdisciplinary studies department, career services, and academic advising focused on the variety of resources and processes to support students in selecting a major. Undeclared students will also find out their advisor who is located in the interdisciplinary studies department until they declare a major.
  • If you are double majoring then you should choose one of the majors to attend and then follow up with the academic department of your other major after the fact. 
  • If you are an education major, you should attend the Meet your Major event for your second major (history, English, psychology, etc.) from 11am - 12pm as outlined at the bottom of this page.  From 12-1pm on that same day all Education majors will meet in Veteran's Hall, Campus Center with the School of Education.

To request accommodations, please contact the disability services office at 978.542.6217 or disability-services@salemstate.edu.
