Choosing the Right Major for YOU

Not sure what to major in? You're not alone, and there are a few options to help you find a major that you love and that will set you on the road to a rewarding career.

Green Box   Come to the Advisement Center!

Located in Cook Library on the second floor, the University Advisement Center has counselors who can suggest majors you might enjoy based on your skills and interests, view your transcripts and help you build a degree plan, and give you general advice about matching your major to a career.

Blue Block  Exploratory Studies

If you're a freshman and don't know what to major in or don't think your declared major is right for you, Exploratory Studies is a great place to explore your options while you're completing your required core classes. Learn more.

Grey Block  Career Services

At Career Services, you can learn to explore different career paths, take an assessment survey online that will link your interests to a career, and talk to counselors about how different majors can put you on the path to success.

Gold Block  Talk to a Professor

If you're taking a class you really enjoy, talk to the professor during their office hours. They can tell you more about the major and possible career paths, and can direct you to a faculty advisor who can walk you through the degree plan.
