How to declare a major or minor in Global and International Studies

If a student entered Loyola as a Global and International Studies major, he or she need not formally declare.

However, it is important to meet with the Global and International Studies program assistant, director, or assistant director during the first semester at Loyola to fill out basic paperwork and discuss program requirements, career goals, and internship options. If a student entered Loyola as "undeclared" or wishes to change majors, he or she must formally declare the Global and International Studies major. All minors must also formally declare. The declaration process itself can be completed online through LOCUS.
