Choosing a Major

The Trojan Academic Advising and Support Center offers services to help students match their interests, aspirations, and abilities at any time during their academic journey.

In declaring a major, a student decides on a particular area of study. This decision helps make the student’s academic goals more specific and maximizes the chances of graduating in four years, without unneeded courses and extra expenses.

Students who have never declared a major should make an appointment with a Discovery Advisor in the Trojan Academic Advising and Support Center in the Student Services Center Building, Suite 320 at (501) 569-3386.

Students who have already declared a major and would like to change to a different major should consult with their existing advisor about how to change majors.
