Yale offers students seventy possible majors, which must be declared by sophomore or junior years, but students are always welcome to change. Some of the top majors currently are Econometrics and Quantitative Economics, Political Science and Government, General, Computer and Information Sciences, General, Cell/Cellular and Molecular Biology, History, and General.

Each major has different requirements, but at the student’s senior year, they will have to turn in a senior requirement. Usually, these are an essay, project, or examination. For the more intensive majors, seniors may be required to attend a specific seminar, tutorial, graduate course, or other project. All schedules and majors are done with an adviser but students are asked to familiarize themselves with all the requirements before declaring a major.
