Choosing Your Major

Start by looking at WMU's list of undergraduate majors. It might help to print a copy and cross off majors that are not possibilities. However, be sure to look up unfamiliar majors; they might turn out to be of interest.

Look up majors of interest on the WMU undergraduate catalog. In the catalog, choose "Programs" from the drop-down menu and then enter a keyword (name of the major, vocation, etc.). An alphabetical list of search results will appear; scroll through to find the desired major.

Take general education classes in areas of interest (check with an advisor to make sure it is a good choice).

Meet with an academic advisor that specializes in the major of interest.
