Campus Resources: Student Conference

Spring into Success is a two-day conference for first-year undergraduate students held at UD in early February. Students will have the opportunity to network, attend presentations, and participate in workshops focused on Academic & Career Success, Personal Development, and Student Involvement & Engagement. For questions about conference registration and early move-in, contact the Office of Residence Life & Housing.

Career Exploration: Job Shadowing

During the winter break, students are encouraged to arrange a job shadow experience with someone who works in their field of interest. Job shadowing may involve taking a “behind the scenes” tour of an organization, attending team meetings, interviewing people who hold positions at different levels of a company, and identifying a mentor who can assist you in evaluating potential career options. To connect with UD alumni who may be willing to host your visit to their place of employment, log in to Handshake.

 

 

Major Exploration: Apparel Design and Fashion Merchandising

If you have a knack for creating, adapting, displaying, and marketing clothing and accessories, a career in the fashion industry may be a good fit for you.

Students interested in the restricted majors, Apparel Design (BS) and Fashion Merchandising (BS), should submit the change of major form found here no later than February 15, 2019 to be considered for acceptance in the Spring. Admission to these majors is restricted; that is, they are limited by academic requirements (such as GPA), availability of resources (such as faculty supervisors), or physical space limitations (such as appropriate laboratory facilities).

 

In the Know: Declaring a Major at UD

Students at the University of Delaware may declare a major and/or minor using the change program plan form available in UDSIS. Although most majors are available to all students, keep in mind that some majors are restricted to students who have met a set of specified criteria (such as a minimum GPA). Some majors also have limited availability due to reaching program capacity. Detailed requirements for restricted majors are available on the Registrar’s page. Please review these criteria carefully and ask an advisor if you have questions.
