Choose or Change a Major

Choosing a major is a significant decision in a college student’s academic career. Depending upon your aspirations and interests, you might consider some of the following questions when considering a major:

  • What subjects come naturally to you, and what are you good at doing?
  • What classes do you enjoy and what do you like to study?
  • Are there opportunities for research, study abroad, and co-curricular opportunities connected to the major’s curriculum?

Start answering these questions and learning about the majors at UConn by accessing the resources below.

This step gives you the opportunity to eliminate majors in which you have no interest, allowing you to focus only on programs that are real possibilities. To make the most of this resource, be sure to complete BOTH elimination phases.
