The selection of a major should generally be made by the end of the sophomore year. However, students interested in very demanding majors like music education or other secondary education programs would be wise to get started earning major credit earlier in their university career. Students may elect to complete the requirements for more than one major.

After a major field of study is selected, a faculty member from the major department will become the student’s academic advisor. The advisor must be consulted for guidance about completing the degree requirements as well as information about careers and graduate education.
