Changing majors

majorI am thinking about pursuing a different major. What should I do?

Schedule an appointment with your advisor.  Together you can:

  • Explore undergraduate majors at UD. Through discussion, use of the Career Service Center’s “Majors Resource Kits,” Internet resources such as the Occupational Outlook Handbook, and career testing (Strong Interest Inventory), you can explore options and investigate whether to pursue a different academic path.
  • Discuss the academic requirements for individual majors and review how the coursework you have completed will count toward the requirements.
  • Review the criteria for specific majors:
  • Establish an academic plan.  Plan what courses you will take in the upcoming semester/session, including prerequisite courses that are needed to move forward with your academic plan.
