Students are advised to consult their academic advisors about the content and sequence of their curriculum, especially where the choice and sequencing of electives are concerned. From our undergraduate and graduate program directors and departmental staff to the School of Public Health and Health Sciences’ Academic Dean’s Office, we are here to help you address your academic questions and concerns and make the most of your UMass education.

You can see a list of major requirements and a general course sequence on Gwyneth Rost's blog.
