About Undecided

No idea what major you want to pursue in college? Do you have so many interests you can’t pick just one? Don’t worry! “Undecided” is the most popular major among Rutgers students. 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 who you really are and what you really want to do. In fact, your uncertainty will let you explore our 100+ majors, and that’s what a college education is all about.

And, you are not at all at a disadvantage in the admissions process if you are still deciding.

Many careers don't 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, responsible work experience, good grades, and involvement in college activities.

You’ll likely find interests you didn’t even know about. If you keep an open mind you will discover your passion, which will inevitably translate into a successful career.
