How to Choose a Major When You're Undecided

Academic-Logo5.png
With the understanding that choosing a major can be a tough decision, the creation of the Academic Explorations Program addresses the needs of undecided students by providing them an exclusive opportunity to explore the variety of majors offered at Rosemont College. Through various events, students can meet with faculty, upperclassmen, administrators and alum to assist with exploring their interest and passions that can help to choose a major. Housing this program out of the new First Year Resource Center in Kaul Hall, continues the connection outside of the classroom for both resident and commuter students.
