Your adviser can help you work it through, and Rutgers Career Services has tons of choosing-your-major resources, too. Even if you change your mind once (or more), relax. Your goals and passions will soon become clear.

And what if you can’t bear to choose just one major? At Rutgers, you won’t have to. Double majors, independent majors, and 100-plus minors give you so many ways to create an education that’s yours and yours alone. A double major in physics and dance with a minor in Chinese? At Rutgers, that's possible!
