According to the National Center for Education Statistics*, over 30% of college students change their major at some point in their four years.

Choosing a major is a big decision, but you don’t have to do it alone.

  • Follow your Interests: consider your Top 5 Strengths and what activities make you come alive. Do you love solving problems, reading, deep conversations, analyzing a situation? Your Strengths can be a clue into what major you might enjoy.
  • Consult Your Advisors: talk to your career coach, meet with your faculty advisor and consult to mentors for their guidance and advice about majors that might suit you well!
