Majors and Minors

Choose Your Own Adventure.

Choosing a major is a big decision, and it is one you don’t need to make right away. Our core requirements are designed to provide you with the appropriate time to expand your perspective and either confirm your instincts or turn you in an entirely new academic direction.

In your first year, we encourage you to test the waters for the majors and potential careers that interest you most. Take advantage of the opportunity to discuss majors and minors you are considering with your academic advisers, the Office of Academic Advising (OAA), the Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD), department representatives at the Major/Minor Fair and adults who have made a career of the majors you are considering.

And don’t forget to enjoy the journey.
