Undecided students

Students often feel pressure to decide on a major for their first year. For some students this makes sense, such as students pursuing Bachelor of Science degrees, which typically require a four-year sequence of courses. But most students are either undecided when they enter or change their majors, sometimes several times. Often, students have many interests they want to explore, and don’t want to specialize too quickly.

We welcome this exploration. An educated person needs to understand the variety of ways of knowing and to see the connections among them. So, while you will need to have a major before you graduate, don’t rush the choice; you may find a more creative, meaningful major by first studying broadly and only then finding the best fit for you.
