There are many things to consider as you gather information about majors and minors. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • What types of courses are required?
  • Would these courses be draining or energizing?
  • What skills are needed to succeed in these courses?
  • Do I think I would do well?
  • How many credit hours do I need to complete for this major?
  • Am I interested in more than one major or minor?
  • What are the related career options for each major/minor?

There are many resources and activities that will help you find answers to all these questions.  Get started today!
