The undeclared major serves students who are undecided about their choice of study or career goals. The student has an opportunity to select a course of study the first two semesters that fits his/her interests and background.
A student enrolled in the undeclared major program must transfer to a degree-granting program within two semesters of admission. Depending on the choice of a major, a student may enter the workfoce upon graduation, or opt to continue his/her education at a four-year institution.
Since the primary goal of the program is to explore various academic areas of interest, individual course schedules will vary. The suggested program below includes both a component of core courses (English, math, social science) and a component of electives in support of the student’s interests.
- Enables students to explore one or more academic areas
- Quality advisement
- Career exploration
- Career counseling and planning through Hunter Student Development Center
A full-time undeclared major student typically enrolls in five courses each semester, which is equivalent to 15 credit hours. Three-credit-hour classes usually meet three days a week for 50-minute class periods or two days a week for one-hour-and-15-minute periods. Credit hours will increase with four-credit-hour courses or laboratory sciences. Students who transfer into some technical curriculums may take more than 18 credit hours some semesters.
