If you aren’t ready to declare a major, you're not alone. One out of four first-year students at King's do not have a major when they register. For these students, most colleges offer an undeclared or undecided major program as a means to explore the many options available to you.

By not declaring a major right away, you will have more time to explore subjects and determine what you are really interested in. Incoming students who choose the undeclared major start their college career by focusing their studies on core courses. Core courses, which include history, science, writing, literature, foreign languages and cultures, philosophy and theology, make up nearly half of all of the classes students need to graduate. By taking these courses at the beginning of your college career, you will have more time to focus on your major once you’ve decided on one. An added bonus is that you won’t lose credits on coursework that is not applicable to your major, helping you to stay on track to graduate in four years.

As you progress, your college academic advisor will work closely with you to help you choose a major that is right for you.
