Selecting A Major

advising-world-map-students

Selecting a major is an important decision in your educational career, and we are here to support you in your decision making process. Many students come to college without a major, and many students change their majors while in school. Wherever you are in that process, please let us know how we can help you. If you are unsure of what major you would like to pursue, a great place to start is to set up a meeting with one of our helpful staff in Pre-Major and Academic Planning or the Career Center.
