If you’re undecided about your major, you’re in the right place! We have the resources and experience to help you connect your interests and strengths to an academic major and career opportunities.
Exploration is an important part of the learning process at Washington State University. During your time here, you will grow and change as a student, a person, and as a citizen. Discovering your purpose, or your “why,” is what college is all about!
Your degree does not define your career opportunities: biology students can go on to be lawyers, history students can be entrepreneurs, business students can be great teachers, and so on. We will work with you explore academics and experiences to find out what is important to you, what subjects make your eyes light up, and how you define success.
Together, you and your Major Exploration advisor will work towards finding which WSU major will best help you achieve your goals.
Taking the first step
Choosing a major can be a daunting process, but we know you are up to the challenge!
Major Exploration advisors are not here to tell you what to do, but rather to guide you through the decision process. The first step is to meet with your advisor. Then throughout the year, we’ll help you find interesting events to attend, connect you with other programs on campus, and work with you to improve your personal communicate skills.
Students who take charge of their own exploration process, ask questions, and are committed to their academic and personal goals are often the most successful.
