Choosing a college major can be a daunting process, and there are a lot of options. An important part of a student's journey through college is determining which major best fits their interests, skills, values, and career goals.
The majority of college students will change their major at least once, and many will change it more than once as interests, skills, values, and career goals may change.
The Department of Engineering Education and Virginia Tech Career and Professional Development recommend students follow the 4 Phase Plan to finding majors and careers. Additional details for each phase can be located below:
Using the options below, students are encouraged to assess their individual goals, values, strengths, weaknesses, and interests to begin to develop "clues" as to which major(s) and/or career(s) could be a could fit for them.
Using the below resources, students are encouraged to intentionally research and make a list of the top five majors they are interested in pursuing.
Once students have determined their top five majors, a vital next step is to review each major's website and look at course descriptions in the undergraduate catalog for majors of interest.
After the initial information gathering, students are encouraged to follow the Major/Career Exploration Checklist, complete the tasks outlined to further evaluate their options, and make a final decision.
Important Reminder: Part of the evaluation phase is determining if you are eligible and/or competitive for your major of choice. Please review the restricted majors at Virginia Tech.
Students should also consider the resources below when evaluating their choice(s):
Once students have made their decision, it is important to take action to reach their goals.
