Thinking About Your Major and Path to
Academic Success

What major are you considering pursuing while you're at Mount Union? There are more than 60 majors to choose from, so even if you haven't decided quite yet, there is plenty of time to learn all about them on our website! You can also spend some time looking at what possible professions you might pursue with a degree from Mount Union.
Many of you probably indicated a major of interest on your admission application or Preview registration form, but did you know that this is not actually a declaration of a major? We use this information to help us cater the information sent to you via email, as well as at Preview and Fall Orientation, but students actually cannot declare their major until after their first semester at Mount Union. While you won't complete any official forms until your second semester, you can still take classes in your intended major (with the exception of education majors, who will start their first education class their second semester). The declaration of major and minor forms are online, and your First Year Seminar instructor will help you find and complete these forms.

Your First Year Seminar instructor will also be your academic advisor as you schedule classes for your second semester at Mount Union, and he or she will remain your academic advisor until you declare your major. Once you've declared a major, you will be assigned a new advisor in the academic department in which your major is housed, and you could begin planning the rest of your course schedule with that new advisor as early as Spring Semester 2015.
In addition to the help your faculty advisor will be able to provide you, there are many additional resources on campus that can help you as you determine a major. In fact, the Office of Students in Academic Transition is specifically designed to help students who are still considering which major they would like to pursue or who would like to change their major. Director of Students in Academic Transition Ron Holden often meets one-on-one with students in order to help them decide which major, minor or career they would like to pursue.

For more information,
