EXPLORE INTENTIONALLY: How to find out if a major is right for you

  • Meet with your assigned undeclared advisor for an Exploring Majors appointment
  • Meet with the advisor or faculty members/professors in the department you’re interested in – look for them on the department’s website
  • Get involved – organizations, clubs, & other activities are great ways to find out what you like & don’t like! Try out involvement advising through SLiCE to find out what fits for you. 
  • Check out the CSU Career Center in LSC 120 for drop-in hours (10-2) for major exploration & career path connections or schedule an appointment with a career educator through Handshake.
  • Need some online resources? Try Ram Career Ready for whenever you need some tools – everything from learning about your interests to crushing a job interview! (note: you have to make an account; it’s free!!)
  • Take classes or sit-in on a class – look up classes through RamWeb’s course look-up & the CSU Catalog
  • Trying to make a decision but finding it to be more confusing than you thought? Check out this resource our undeclared advising team created about your decision making processes.
  • Reflect. Reflect. Reflect. What do you like? Not like? Why? What do you value? When do you feel at your best? What is most important to you in a major or career? Why are you here at CSU? etc… THINK DEEP – smarter, not harder.
  • Do some myth busting about being undeclared.
