Choose Your Major

Choosing a major that is right for you will be one of the most important decisions you make in your academic career. If you already know your major, congratulations. If you are like the majority of students, you might have some ideas but have not made a decision yet. The good news is, if you are willing to invest time in this process, which is really an investment in yourself, then you can find the major that is right for you. 

Eliminate some Options

The list of possible majors to choose can be overwhelming. A good place to start is to eliminate the majors/subjects you know you're not interested in. Then you can focus on the remaining possibilities. Use the "Creating Your Short-List of Possible Transfer Majors"  exercise to get started.
