Go Ahead...Explore Majors
We understand that choosing a major can be overwhelming, and recognize that exploring majors is part of a successful college journey—especially for students who have a lot of interests.
At Michigan Tech, you don't have to decide on a major to start building your career path. With more than 80 undergraduate BA or BS degrees in science, technology, engineering, math, forestry, business and economics, health professions, humanities, social sciences, and the arts, you’ll find your place among innovators and problem solvers, artists and critical thinkers.
The general sciences and arts option gives you the place and the 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 what may turn out to be less than what you expected.
"I didn’t know what I wanted to do and I was really stressed about it. Then when I joined general sciences and arts, I realized it’s okay. It’s completely okay not to know what you want to do."
You’ll take a class specifically designed to help you explore majors and hear from students who were once undecided and found the major that’s right for them. 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.
