Selecting a Major

At Trinity, students have nearly two years to explore the campus environment, get to know faculty, and develop or articulate career-related interests. Your major plays an important role in determining your career plan, setting your career goals, and understanding graduate or professional school requirements. 

Trinity students have until the second semester of their sophomore year (58 completed hours) to make a final decision on major. Even then, students can still change majors. Make the best grades you can from the very beginning, get involved outside of class, explore your world, and have conversations with your peers, mentors and faculty.

After your initial exploration, you may have questions about major selection when the time comes. Career Services offers advising and career-based assessments to help determine interest, skills, work values, and personality. While assessments do not offer you a definite answer to the "perfect major" question, they can help you understand yourself a little better or reassure you of your career direction. Selecting your major is only the beginning. Career Services has a variety of resources to assist with determining what occupation to pursue related to your major, researching graduate education, and making connections in the community.
