Sophomores

Declare a Major

Students typically officially declare a major by the second semester of their sophomore year. 

  • Undecided? Explore! This is your time to check out courses for potential majors & minors
  • Decided? It is important to meet with the adviser in your major department and get involved in the life of your academic department.
  • RU wondering what students with your major might do post-Rutgers?  Check out how to connect with alumni through University Career Services.

Engage with Honors

  • Be mindful of the SAS Honors Academic Progress Policy.
      • All honors students must earn a minimum 3.25 semester GPA during their first year and a 3.5 semester GPA every semester thereafter.
      • The Global Language Proficiency Requirement is more than a requirement; it prepares you as a member of an increasingly globalized society.  Check out all four options; there is something for everyone!
      • It's never too early to begin thinking about your senior capstone! Create a folder with potential research ideas and epiphanies that come up as you take classes and engage with faculty.

Take care of your mind & body!

  • Speak with a confidential professional at Counseling, ADAP, & Psychiatric Services (CAPS).
  • De-stress at any of the free classes offered at the campus Recreation Centers.
