Explore Through Experience

Once you have narrowed down your list to a few majors, consider an engagement experience that will allow you to go a little deeper to test your interest and skills and get a sense of the “academic life” of the major. Discuss ideas with your University Division academic advisor, especially those that involve taking a course.

  • Take a course or a second course in the major.
  • Are there Service Learning courses in this major?
  • Talk with professors and associate instructors about why they chose to pursue that academic field. Do you relate to their passion for the discipline?
  • Join a student organization related to the major.
  • Talk with classmates and students in the major about why they chose to pursue the major. Can you see yourself in what they say?
