SELECTING A MAJOR

A major is a specific subject area that students specialize in. Typically, between one-third and one-half of the courses you’ll take in college will be in your major or related to it.

At some colleges, you can even:

  • Major in two fields.
  • Have a major and a minor (a specialization that requires fewer courses than a major).
  • Create your own major.

Click on the links below to explore majors.
