Academic Advisement

Undecided on Your Major?

TMCC offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs. With so many options, it may be difficult to decide on one degree or certificate. It is important to realize that it is okay to be undecided. However, there are benefits of deciding your program of study early. The benefits include knowing what courses are required for your program and graduating sooner so you can get out into your career or transfer to a university.

When you are undecided, it is good to explore different majors and careers. Academic Advisors are here to help you with the major exploration process.

Questions to Ask Yourself

  • What are you interested in?
  • Where do your strengths lie?
  • What courses or subjects have you done well in?
  • What careers seem interesting to you?

Major Exploration

Once you have thought about your interests and strengths, it is time to explore degrees and certificates to see what areas may be a good match for you. The following tools and websites are helpful resources available to you:

The Advisement Computer Lab is available for major exploration. Additionally, many of our Academic Advisors are MBTI® Certified practitioners and can offer your guidance to begin the exploration process.  Once you have decided upon a major, you will need to complete a Degree/Emphasis Change form through Admissions & Records.

To review your options with an Academic Advisor, contact us to schedule an individual advisement appointment for major exploration. Counseling and Career Services is available for career exploration.
