What Major is Right for You

Which Major is Right for You?

As a transfer student, you are encouraged to select a major during the application process. Bridgewater State University offers 31 undergraduate majors for you to chose from, and choosing a major that is right for you is the beginning of your educational journey.
When deciding on a major it is important to:
  • Consult the University Catalog for requirements specific to each major. For example, some majors have an application process with a specific deadline date, while others do not.
  • Consider what courses you have already taken and how they will apply to the major you have chosen.
  • Determine what area of study you are passionate about. Keep in mind that you have your whole life ahead of you to enter the workforce and spending an extra semester to obtain the degree that you want is something worth considering.
