"I Don't Know What To Major In!"

Posted by Sandy Lashin-Curewitz | August 21, 2015

What schools are you looking at? What clubs do you want to join? What are you going to study? And so begins the typical stream of college search questions. Well, you probably know where you're looking, and you know which extracurriculars interest you, but choosing a major—that can take time. We realize that many soon-to-be college students don't have it figured out quite yet. That's why we go the extra mile to help you choose the field that suits you—and give you a year to do it.

I don't know what to major in!

As an undecided student at Becker, you'll:

  • Enter a general education curriculum and take courses in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and mathematics, for a well-rounded learning experience.
  • Gain skills that are required across all programs and career paths, such as written and oral communication, analytical abilities, and sensitivity to ethical and moral issues.
  • Stay on track by fulfilling credit requirements that can be put toward your associate's or bachelor's degree.
  • Take our two-credit First Year Experience (FYE) Academic Success Course, a requirement for all first-year students. 
  • Meet with your advisor to explore possible majors and career paths.
  • Learn from the same experienced faculty as our declared students.
  • Speak to the professors who teach in your areas of interest about their curriculum and programs.
  • Have access to the resources provided by the Center for Career Education. Schedule an appointment to discuss your major and career options with our knowledgeable and helpful staff. (The Center also offers resume and cover letter review, and assistance in the internship and job search for upperclassmen.)
