Academic Department Tours


Enhance Your Visit

Speak with staff and faculty in your major


While the information session and tour offered by admissions will give you an overall look at campus and the opportunities available to the Blue Hen community, many students will still have questions about their desired major. Some may want to speak to an academic advisor or faculty member. Others may be curious about labs and research areas. Still others may wish to sit in on a class. Contact the academic department below at least five days in advance to find what opportunities they have to offer.

Please note: some visit options (e.g. classroom visits) may not be available on weekends, during final exams or recess periods. Contact the department for availability.
