Changing your Major to Genetics

Initial Admission to the major as a First-year or Transfer Student

Students entering the University as first-year or transfer students may declare Genetics as part of the UNH admission process.  First-year students who are admitted directly into Genetics will be assigned an academic faculty advisor who will work with you throughout your course of study.
