some students enter college knowing what they will major in, others may
experience uncertainties ranging from not knowing how to identify their
interests and/or strengths to understanding how their strengths and interests
can be aligned with a particular major. The reassuring news is you don’t have
to enter college knowing exactly what you want to do, and being initially
undeclared can open you up to more options and possibilities. That said, please
note that if you are undecided about your major it is important to work closely
with an academic advisor who can help you explore your options early.
CU Denver, a cadre of trained academic advisors in the Center for Undergraduate Exploration & Advising (CUE & A) are here to assist students with interest inventory and
major exploration. Advising in CUE & A is often done on a one-on-one basis and
sessions are tailored to meet individual student needs. As a supplemental
resource, this page is designed to provide you with the guidance you need to
begin this exploration on your own. There are many great online resources, both
at CU Denver and beyond, that you can utilize to delve into your research for a
potential major. Below are a few of our favorites. Do note that many of the
links will take you to other universities' websites that we think would be
helpful for you.
