Picking a major

There are those who decided they’d be pre-med in the fifth grade. Then there are the rest of us. If you’re feeling overwhelmed about deciding on a major, we’re here to help. With some guided discovery and reflection, you can learn how to connect your interests and talents to a major and a career.

Ask yourself these questions

  • What classes do I enjoy?
  • What are my interests?
  • What skills do I have?
  • What skills would I like to learn?
  • Do I have a career in mind?
  • Will this potential major allow me to add value to the career I have in mind?

Students may find it helpful to start by meeting one-on-one with their career adviser. We like to get to know your unique needs and help you facilitate the discovery process as well as provide you with helpful resources.
