If you’re undecided about your career goals, the undeclared major may be right for you. This program gives you the opportunity to try different options and select a course of study the first two semesters that fits your interests and background. Along the way, you can take advantage of extensive support services, including career planning and counseling, offered by caring faculty and staff throughout the program.

Since the primary goal of the program is to explore various academic areas of interest, individual course schedules will vary. The suggested program includes both a component of core courses (English, math, social science) and a component of electives in support of your interests.

Students enrolled in the undeclared major must transfer to a degree-granting program within two semesters. Depending on the choice of major, students may enter the workforce upon graduation, or continue their education in a bachelor’s degree program.
