The Undeclared Major
The undeclared major in the Center for Academic Success provides students with one-on-one advising and guidance, assistance in career exploration, and academic support while selecting their majors and future careers. During the freshman and sophomore years, students will enroll in university studies courses that are required for all Murray State graduates. While completing these essential and valuable courses, students will explore their interests and strengths and decide which major is best. Undeclared majors enroll in a first year transitions course to help them make connections on campus and understand the effort and commitment it takes to be a successful college student. Undeclared majors are advised by professional advisors in the Center for Academic Success. At MSU, you are required to declare your major by the time you earn 45 credit hours. If you successfully complete 15 credit hours a semester, you will want to declare your major no later than the first semester of your sophomore year.
