Being undecided or undeclared about a major is not a bad thing, but we do want to help you become a student who knows what you want to major in while at GSU. In fact, the average Georgia State student changes their major three times before graduating. Choosing a major does not have to be a hard task and that is why the Student Advisement Center and other offices on campus are here to help you. We call this process Major Exploration because we want you to explore all the options that are available to you as a student here at GSU! We will do this through a plan we have created to assist you along the way of exploring and choosing a major that will eventually lead you to a career you can look forward to after graduation!
Some of the benefits of this process include:
The process you will go through has three steps. While you can expect the advisor to help you along the way, there are expectations that the advisors have of you while going through this process.
Step 1: Know Yourself
Step 2: Know What is Out There
Step 3: Take Action!
