How to Declare a Major/Minor in Economics

To Declare the Major

Students can change their major on their MyMAP. Whether you already have a current major declared or not, the process is the same to declare an Economics major.
1. Under your "Student Summary" tab in your MyMAP, select "Change Major Request".
2. Follow the steps to petition for a change of major request.
3. If the petition is approved, the major will be declared within 5 business days.
4. You will receive a YMessage when the major has been successfully declared.

You do not need to go into the Liberal Arts Advisement Center to declare an Economics major.
However, if you have more than 90 BYU credits, you must schedule an appointment with the Liberal Arts Advisement Center to declare an Economics major.
