6 Paths to Finding the Right Major for You

Take Advantage of UC Davis' First-Year Seminars, Research, Internships, and Advisors

Most students have to put a major on their applications, but how do you know it’s the right one? And how can you discover other options?

The good news is you’re not alone in questioning your choice of major. More than half of UC Davis students change their major at least once. But it’s best to settle with the right one by your sophomore year, especially if you plan to graduate on time.
