Changing major at Yale?

<p>Hello, one of my students is interested in applying to Yale engineering program, but she fears if she can change her major to some liberal arts study later?</p>

<p>How flexible is Yale's approach to accommodating student's desire to change major?</p>

<p>I know that at Columbia Fu Foundation school, changing a major to one of the studies at Columbia College is almost impossible.</p>

<p>Can anyone comment on this?</p>

<p>This isn't a problem at Yale. All prospective undergrads apply and are admitted to Yale College, not to a specific major or program. Most students don't have to declare a major until the beginning of junior year. Students majoring in the sciences and in mathematics are the exception: they have to indicate their major during sophomore year.</p>

<p>Too late to edit. To change majors, of course, you do have to have fulfilled the prerequisites for the major on time.</p>

<p>wjb, thanks for your comment. I am sure my student will be relieved to hear your comments. Thanks again.</p>
