Consider what you enjoy, what you're good at, and your budding goals, then make a choice; remembering that:
Choosing a major is not the same as choosing a career.
All careers have multiple points of entry and your major could lead to any number of different jobs.
Doubts are natural
Choosing or changing a major is a decision that can feel daunting, but we’re here to support you. Doubts may arise because of a “sophomore slump,” an encounter with a particular professor, or when thinking about potential post-grad opportunities.
Many students change their major one or more times during their time at UVM.
But do think critically about whether changing your major is what you really need - getting help at the Tutoring Center or joining a new club might be a way to resolve the challenges and doubts you are facing.
Staying in the wrong major can cause unnecessary stress.
While changing majors might seem stressful, by staying with the major you don't like, you may do poorly, leave school dissatisfied with your experiences, or be unprepared for the career you actually want.
Your college experience is more than just your major.
Make the most out of your college-years by getting engaged & gaining experience - in any way that works for you - volunteering, campus activities, athletics, internships, jobs and more! Our 4-Year Path can help you think about all these options.
