Need to choose a major? Go exploring.
At Tech, you don't have to decide on a major to start building your career path. We want you to find your place among the innovators, problem solvers, artists, and critical thinkers by exploring the undergraduate BA or BS degrees we offer—in science, technology, engineering, math, forestry, business and economics, health professions, humanities, social sciences, and the arts.
With more than 120 degree programs offered at Michigan Tech, we understand that choosing just one can be overwhelming—and we recognize that exploring majors is part of a successful college journey, especially for students who have a lot of interests.
The exploring majors program gives you space to find the major that's right for you. You'll have the advantage of time (up to three semesters) to explore different majors without delaying graduation or losing money pursuing a major that may not be what you expected.
Your dedicated academic advisor will help you explore your unique talents, interests, and career goals through one-on-one discussions and the Exploring Majors course. In the semester-long course, current students from a variety of majors will visit your classroom and discuss what they study in their programs to give you ideas and inspiration for your own studies. As you weigh your options, your advisor will also help you select courses that fulfill bachelor's degree requirements and your general education credits, so you don’t lose time to graduation in the process.
