Give yourself time, and build on the basics.

At Michigan Tech, you don’t have to decide on a major to start building your career path. A public research university, we offer more than 80 undergraduate programs in science, technology, engineering, math, forestry, business and economics, health professions, humanities, and social sciences. Explore the options on the shores of Lake Superior.

We’re innovators and problem solvers, artists and critical thinkers. Overall job placement rate is 92 percent.

Business, engineering, science, technology, math, education—with so many options, how are you supposed to decide? We understand that choosing a major can be overwhelming, and we think it’s crazy to dive into a program you’re unsure about.

So make the smart move and give yourself some extra time to make the right decision. We make it easy—through the general sciences and arts program, you’ll have the advantage of time (up to three semesters) to explore different majors without delaying graduation or losing money pursuing what may turn out to be less than what you expected.

Your academic advisor will help you choose courses that satisfy the general education requirements of all majors, and we will provide resources and guidance to help you find the major that best suits your own talents, interests, and values.
