Deciding on a Major can be a challenging and exciting task. The M.E. Program is available to help assist you in making that decision by introducing you to a step-by-step process to help you determine your major. Review the steps below and also visit our Resources page.
Step Two: Gathering Info!
Step two of the M.E. Program will look closely at the results of your assessments to allow you to continue to gather info about yourself and make informative decisions as you move forward in the major decision making process. This step also allows you to…
- Research the different careers that match your personality.
- Attend different workshops and major fairs given by the University Advisement Center.

Step Three: Academic Exploration
Step three allows you to directly apply the new information you have learned about yourself as you explore academically by…
- Figuring out if the major you are interested in offers an introductory class, and seeing if it is a part of the core curriculum. If that is the case, take the class to help you find out if that is the major you are interested in.
- Looking at the list of majors and beginning to cross off the majors you know you aren’t interested in.
