Make an Exploratory Plan

Make an Exploratory Plan

The best way to choose your major is by making a well-informed and a well-thought-out decision following a step-by-step process. This toolkit includes some Exploratory tasks to do. Meet with your assigned University Division academic advisor to discuss what steps to take and set a timeline for making a decision. View the "Advisors and Choices" videos.

Ideally, you will be starting your exploration at the beginning of your first semester. A great first step is attending the Majors, Minors, and More Fair during Welcome Week in the fall. No matter when you start, however, you should set a date for each step so that you narrow your options down as much as possible by the time you register for your next term. Then continue with the process with the goal to have your major chosen.
