Undecided about your major?

But don't worry—25 percent of incoming UO students aren’t sure about their majors when they enroll. You’ll be in great company as you explore your academic opportunities.

One benefit to being undecided about your major is that your mind is open—a lot like your future.

Each term, you'll find more than 3,000 classes to choose from in cutting-edge areas such as nanotechnology, sports marketing, product design, landscape architecture, ethnic studies, and many, many more.
