Don’t know what to study? Don’t worry.

At Eastern University, first-year students are welcome to enter as “undeclared” or Exploratory Studies majors. This means that all students have the opportunity to explore introductory classes before making a decision about their major. It is recommended that students declare by the end of their sophomore year, but some declare earlier. Students have plenty of time to take care of general education requirements and think about which major will be right for them.

Who can help?

Academic Advisors: Every Eastern student receives an academic advisor who will assist them with choosing classes and discerning their professional path. There is no question that is unwelcome, no request that will not be taken seriously, and no run-around to find out how to work through an issue.

The Center for Career Development also has many resources for students who aren’t sure what to major in. The Center can utilize tools such as personality inventories and strengths finders to help students discover their passions and talents.
