How to Choose a Major When You're Undecided

the.future.jpg

Choosing a college major can be a tough decision - especially when your friends and classmates seem to have it all figured out. You're not alone! Many Rosemont alumni and even some of your professors were once faced with the same dilemma.

With this in mind, Rosemont has created the Academic Explorations program, which will give you the opportunity to meet with faculty, administrators and alumni. The goal is to help you choose a major that emphasizes your strengths and interests while maximizing your opportunities - both during and after your time at Rosemont.
