What was your experience with declaring and/or changing your major?
• Majors can lead to a variety of different careers and
opportunities, some of which may be unplanned and

• Many graduate programs recruit from a variety of majors
Certain programs may require specific prerequisites

• Employers and graduate programs look for a “balanced student.”
Critical thinking skills, extracurricular activities, job/internship experience, GPA, rigor of coursework, and volunteer work are all taken into consideration

• Be open to growth and change! Many students discover new
passions or interests during their college career, which may lead
them in unanticipated directions… such as a new major. Keep an
open mind and don’t be afraid to visit campus offices for guidance
and support.
