It can be hard for students to decide what they want to major in. In fact, many start college not knowing what interests them and unaware of all the majors available to them. That's where we come in. Choosing the right major is important for student success and our Center for Undergraduate Exploration and Advising (CUE&A) advisors are here to help students along their journey.
As you start to think about your major, there are several things to keep in mind.
- Your major doesn't dictate what you have to do for the rest of your life
- There is no perfect major
- Taking a personality assessment, an interest inventory, or other test can be helpful but don’t expect them to have all the answers
- While academic advisors, career counselors, friends, and
family will offer you good guidance, they can’t make up your mind for you — the
decision is yours to make
- You can change your major if you decide it’s not for you, but
there may be consequences depending on ypur level of completion — be sure to consult
your academic advisor when you’re thinking about changing your major to help
you understand program requirements and make the transition smoother
