Major Exploration Fair

Picture of a woman looking puzzled

No major?  No problem. 

Here's an opportunity to meet faculty and discover the right academic program for you. Be sure to ask some of the following questions:

  • What are the most difficult courses in the major?
  • What skills will the major help me to develop?
  • What minors complement this major?  
  • Will graduate school be necessary to work in fields usually associated with the major?  

Although the process of selecting a major can feel overwhelming, confusing and even scary, if done well, it can lead to a fulfilling academic experience and meaningful career options.  

Academic Advisors will  be available to help you make this important decision and to learn about  the degree audit ‘what if’ major feature. Career specialists will also be on hand to help you and make the connections between a major and a career.
