Choosing a Major

Many students are not aware that they will be required to complete freshman and sophomore courses that prepare them to enter their major as a junior. In some cases, it is difficult to be admitted to a university without these "lower-division major prerequisites", also known as "lower division major preparation" or just "major prep". You certainly cannot be admitted to your major at the university without them. Consequently, choosing a major as early as possible is important. The links below connect you to information about how to choose a major, impacted majors and exploring majors. If you are still unsure about your major, you should make an appointment with your MJC Counselor to get a referral to complete some career assessments.
