Find Out What Your School’s Major Declaration Timeline Is
Often colleges allow you to take college courses for a year or two before they require you to declare or choose a major. In fact, most colleges will not require you to choose your major until the end of your sophomore year. This means you can start college as an “undecided” major and take classes – generals and major-specific if it’s allowed – and explore your interests before you have to officially declare your major.
It’s Ok to Declare Your Major and Then Change It… Most Times
You may declare your major and then after taking some classes, discover that you don’t really enjoy the idea of working in that major’s career field when you graduate. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), 80% of students in the U.S. change their major at least 1-3 times throughout their college career. Note: if you are in your junior year or later of college and are considering changing your major, be sure to explore what it is about your current major or field that you don’t like. Then talk with your department counselor or advisor about how changing your major may affect your graduation timeline and career options. You may find a related field within your major that interests you and that you can still work in after graduating with your current declared major.
