In order to officially declare Educational Studies as a dual major, you will need to have either entered UNH with a declared major other than Educational Studies, or, if you entered as undeclared, you must have already declared a first major.  You must have a GPA of 2.50 or better; therefore, you must have at least completed your first semester of study at UNH. 

To declare, you will need to fill out an Intent to Dual Major Form AND complete the Change of Program process (outlined below). The Intent form should be submitted to the Educational Studies Program Office in 203 Morrill Hall. If you are unable to download the form by clicking on the form name above, you may pick up a hard copy in the Educational Studies Program Office. Once this paperwork has been submitted, you will be automatically admitted to the program.

You may declare a dual major in Educational Studies at any time. Currently, there is no set deadline to do so.

You may declare the four-year B.A. in Educational Studies: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at any time, using the change of program process detailed below.
