How to declare a major or minor in global studies

If a student entered Loyola as a global studies major, he or she need not formally declare.

However, it is important to meet with the Global Studies program assistant, director, or assistant director during the first semester at Loyola to 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 studies major. All minors must also formally declare. The declaration process itself can be completed online through LOCUS.
