Exploring Majors

ACADEMIC ADVISING & SUPPORT

Exploring Majors

Many students entering Rowan as freshmen are not yet ready to choose a major. Rest assured that you are in good company and we are here to support you. We have a dedicated team of academic advisors in the University Advising Center (Savitz Hall, Third floor) available to answer your questions and guide you through the exploration process.

Here are a few important things to explore during this time:

  1. Information about yourself, your interests and abilities
  2. Information about Rowan majors
  3. Information about the world of work

Fortunately, we live in a time in which many of these considerations can be explored using tools available online. These tools are excellent resources when combined with academic advising. For more details, contact your academic advisor.
