No idea what major you want to pursue in college? Do you have so many interests that you can’t pick just one?
Most Rutgers students don’t need to declare a major until their sophomore year (and even after, they sometimes change their minds), so you’ll have plenty of time to figure out what you really want to do. In fact, your uncertainty will drive you to explore our 100+ majors, and that’s what a college education is all about.
You are not at all at a disadvantage in the admissions process if you are still deciding.
We also offer a Still Deciding Career Cluster, which will give you the opportunity to meet with one of the many career advisers trained to assist you in the exploration process. Many careers do not require a specific major but rather a wide range of demonstrated skills and accomplishments. Regardless of your career choices, you can increase your marketability to employers through internships, work experience, good grades, and involvement in college activities.
You’ll likely find a bunch of interests you didn’t even know about. If you keep an open mind, you will find your purpose and that will inevitably translate into a successful career.
