Undecided: Exploring Your Options

Not sure what you would like to major in or what career path is right for you? Then “undecided” is a great place to start!

Up to 80% of students entering college admit they do not know what to major in but they declare a major anyway. As many as 75% of students change majors at least once.

As an undecided major, you work with an advisor to satisfy core requirements while exploring the curriculum. This ensures that you are making steady progress toward graduation while taking your time to explore possible fields of study. You can then be intentional about declaring a major at the end of freshman year.

You will be assigned to an advisor for undecided students who will provide you with the tools and the direction to find the major that is right for you. Advisors will provide resources and activities to help put you on the path to success in your future career. Here’s how it works:

  • You meet the advisors at orientation in the summer.
  • There is a majors meeting for undecided students during the first few weeks of classes.
  • During the fall semester, you begin working with the Career and Professional Development Office to explore your skills and talents and how to connect them to a major. You can take career assessments and look at job shadowing opportunities to find out what jobs interest you.
  • Your advisor assists you with course selection for spring semester and helps you explore your major options.
  • You can declare a major as soon as you are ready or by March of your freshman year. Once you have decided upon a major, your advisor connects you with advisors in that academic department.

Two tracks are available to undecided majors, which will enable you to complete general liberal arts core requirements while preparing for majors within the following areas:

  • Professional Studies Core
  • Arts and Sciences Core
