Still deciding? Several interests? This is the place for you.

If you’re not certain which career path to take, or if you have several interest areas you want to explore before choosing a major, you’re not alone. In fact, “still deciding” is one of our most popular majors! 

At Hastings College, we welcome students like you. We know you’ll thrive thanks to core programs we offer and the opportunity to explore during your first year. Or two.

Since our students choose a major, a minor and an interdisciplinary (IDEA) minor, begin where you’re most comfortable or have the most interest. Maybe that’s an IDEA or other minor, or even just a series of classes that work across the two!

Since our academic approach allows this type of freedom, and not a prescribed path, you’ll be able to try new things while also fulfilling graduation requirements. 

You’ll also take Gallop’s CliftonStrengths your first few weeks on campus. This assessment explores what you do well naturally, and by developing those strengths, you’ll build off what makes you exceptional — and maybe help you narrow your interests.

In the end, you may surprise yourself with what clicks, what inspires you and the direction you take. And with more than 50 majors and pre-professional programs, you’ll ultimately discover the perfect major and minor.

To support your decision-making process and encourage you along the way, you’ll be assigned an advisor who will serve as a guide in all things academic, from the best classes to take to help you graduate in four years to helping you explore career interests.

Our advisors:

  • Put you on the path to make the most of your time at college.
  • Help you discover your talents and strengths.
  • Connect you with the resources for you to succeed academically, including undergraduate research opportunities and internships.

Our Office of Vocation and Career Services is also here to help you explore and weigh options. It offers free resources and career interest surveys, with staff on hand to help you interpret the results.
