Most Fairhaven College students choose to design an Interdisciplinary Concentration, but many choose to complete a standard WWU major instead of or in addition to a Fairhaven Concentration. Fairhaven College students, as Western Washington University students, are eligible to pursue and complete any of the approved majors offered through WWU, except the Multidisciplinary Studies major.
There are many ways to explore majors, including contacting departmental offices directly, perusing the WWU catalog for major requirements, reviewing the university's Major Guide through the Academic Advising Center's website and, of course, talking with advisors. Fairhaven students, like all other WWU students, are subject to the departmental admission and graduation requirements, as defined by the appropriate department. The Fairhaven Core Curriculum replaces the WWU GURs for Fairhaven College students regardless of their choice of major.

Current Students: Declaring your major
Your choice of academic major needs to be approved by that department and is recorded on your student academic record. The Declaration of Major card must be filed before a student has accrued 120 credits, and, in some cases, provides access to major restricted coursework in the department. Contact the WWU Registrar's Office or any departmental office for the Declaration of Major card. For help, see Fairhaven Advising.
