A MAJOR Decision...

The major you choose will impact your life in a variety of ways, including the classes you will take, the opportunities that are available, and the career path that will follow. At UT Arlington, we understand that choosing a major is a process, one that requires time, thought, research, and self-reflection. As a UT Arlington student, you have many resources at your disposal to help you through this process, and no matter where you are on your Major Exploration journey, we are here to make sure that your major decision is the right decision for you.
