Undeclared (Business and Communications Meta-Major)


Description


The Business & Communications Meta-major is designed for students who are considering academic studies in the areas of business, journalism, communications, and English.  Though there is a wide range of courses in this meta-major, the focus is on coursework related to written and oral communication.

Purpose
The purpose of the Undeclared major is to assist students who are undecided about their academic path through a collaborative student-centered approach.  The University Advising Center engages students in the process of exploring and defining their academic and career goals and create effective strategies to achieve these goals.  Students are encouraged to take ACE 100 - Academic and Career Exploration (1 unit) in the fall semester of their freshman year to help jumpstart their decision on a major.
 
Meta-Majors
All Undeclared majors are strongly encouraged to choose a meta-major for their course of study.  After consultation with their advisor, students will be declared into a meta-major and will be able to choose courses that are applicable to multiple degrees within the same general academic focus area.  There are four meta-majors for undeclared students:

  • STEM Meta-major
  • Business & Communications Meta-major
  • Liberal Arts Meta-major
  • Health & Education Meta-major

Declaration of Major Policy
Undeclared students must declare a major before or upon completion of 45 credits as per the Declaration of Major Requirement policy specified in this catalog.
