How to Discover Your Major:

  • Review the Major Requirements in the current catalog.
  • Check out the department websites for detailed information on each program.
  • Review what recent grads are doing with a major in… ask Career Services for assistance!

What to do if you just can't decide:

  • Take required general education courses or common courses that will count towards several degrees.  Use the curriculum worksheets that are in the catalog and online.
    • Avoid major hopping due to conflicts with professors, not being able to relate the material to how it applies in the real world or general personal crisis (including family pressure!).
