Switching Majors and Faculties

edited March 2014 in McGill University

I was recently admitted to the Faculty of Arts and Science for Environmental Science at the MacDonald campus and am set on going to McGill. However, I'd like to change my major to economics or accounting/finance or management. Is this possible to change faculties and majors?

Thank you

    I guess you will have to reapply (if the applications are still open) to the Faculty of Arts and Desautels school of management.

    I'm pretty sure you don't even declare a major until your second year. Even after that, when I went on the tour, the guide said it's easy to switch majors, and you can even switch faculties, it's just a little more difficult.

    yes i also want to transfer to another faculty and was wondering whether I should make a new application(which I really don't want to do) or if I should wait till I'm accepted and then transfer

    @redglarez You don't have to declare a major until your second year, but you cannot take the courses that fall outside the faculty you've enrolled in.

    So technically its not possible to be admitted to the Faculty of Agricultural Science and take Economics courses which come under the Faculty of Arts.
