Major Exploration

The University Advising Center assists all students interested in exploring majors to find their best-fit major at Texas State. There are many forms of major exploration that the University Advising Center assists students with:

  1. Completely Undecided: Students who are still exploring all their options.
  2. Deciding: Students who have narrowed down their options to a few top choices.
  3. Decided, but Not Admitted: Students who have a major selected and are working toward the requirements to declare it.
  4. Reconsidering: Students who have a major declared but are considering a change of direction.

If you resonate with any of the above scenarios, please connect with the University Advising Center!
