Health and Society

Major Declaration

Incoming freshmen and transfer students can declare Health & Society as their major at the time of their application to UT. 

Internal Transfer Admission 

The internal transfer application is currently closed.

Current UT students interested in declaring Health & Society must submit an internal transfer application.

Fall application deadline: December 1st, 2019, 11:59 PM CST

To be considered for internal transfer into H S, you must meet all of the following criteria:

  1. Minimum 2.75 cumulative UT GPA with at least 12 hours in-residence taken for a letter grade.
  2. Must be prior to fifth long semester in college, at UT Austin or at a previous institution. Transfer students entering the University with 4 or more semesters can only apply in their first semester at UT.
  3. Submit a compelling essay response.
Students who do not meet the eligibility criteria and still want to apply can explain their circumstances within the application. 

Information Sessions

Attendance at an internal transfer information session is highly recommended. The intent of the information session is to enhance your understanding of the major and help you determine if H S is the right major for you.
