Selecting a Major
Choosing a major is an exciting process. Think about your interests and strengths, not just what you hope to do as a career. Remember that your major won't necessarily determine your career later on, so spend some time researching what we offer before you decide.
First-Choice MajorWe encourage you to select a first-choice major that is aligned with your interests and strengths, not just what you hope to do as a career.
Second-Choice MajorYou may be considered for your second-choice major if you qualify for automatic admission and are not admitted to your first-choice major.
