Major & Exploration
Experts estimate that more than 25% of entering students are undecided about their major and more than 75% of college students who begin their studies in declared majors change their minds at least once before they graduate.
Choosing a major is one of those decisions that comes to you in your own way and is based on your personal interests, goals, and life experiences. Some students declare their major and change their minds several times before making a final choice, while others prefer to take time to explore options that they have before declaring.
