Finding the right-fit major is a journey of exploration and self-reflection. University Advisement advisors can help you in the process of identifying potential majors.
Feel free to visit our office in Sid Richardson during our walk-in hours to start the discussion.
Want to get started exploring the possibilities? Here are some steps you can take now:
Begin by narrowing the choices.
- Review the list of Majors at Baylor
- Eliminate majors or areas you are not considering.
- Create a list of the 3-5 majors you find interesting.
Investigate the majors you have listed.
- Are there specific qualifications to declare any of these majors? (Minimum GPA or prerequisite courses, for example)
- Review the courses in the major. Do you think those are interesting? Do those courses match your strengths?
- What challenges do you see with requirements for any of the majors you are considering?
- Are there courses you can take to explore the major? This may be determined by a discussion with the advisors in University Advisement.
- Visit the department for the major(s) to talk with a faculty member about the major, coursework, and possible areas of research.
Find out if the major prepares you for the career you are considering.
- Two sites you can visit to find potential careers which match the major are:
- Discover more about your career interests by using some online or in-person resources offered by the Career Center.
- Take assessments and find out about careers that fit your interests, strengths, and preferences.
