Interest Area Maps
Love STEM but not yet sure of your major and want help deciding classes? No problem. We’re developing “interest area maps” that provide a sample of what your first 2 semesters could look like. It allows you get a sense of what STEM is and explore specific majors in ways that ensure you stay on track.
Please note this is a sample map. You're encouraged to meet with an academic counselor to confirm what courses are right for you.
Already know what major you’re going for but not sure what classes to take? We’ve got that, too! Visit the areas of study links in the Interest Areas and you’ll find degrees and certificates with a sample program map to give you a sense of what you can expect.
