Students who have been accepted to USFSM may be admitted to pursue any majors in the Department of Liberal Arts or in the Department of Social Sciences of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS); however, they must apply for admittance to the CLASS School of Education. At New-student Orientation, students submit a declaration of major form for degrees of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, or they submit an application to major form for a degree in Education (See Elementary Education).
