We know that choosing or changing a college major is an important process that deserves time and exploration. According to USA Today in 2015, 80% of college students change their major at least once, so if you are questioning what path might be best for you, realize you’re not alone. There are many people at UT who can help you make this important decision.

The University of Tampa has a variety of resources to help design an academic path to your success. The Academic Exploration Program within the Academic Success Center provides support to students who are questioning what major to choose, considering changing majors or looking for ways to maximize their overall educational experience through major, minor and course choices. The Major Exploration staff understand this process is unique to each student, so if you have any questions, please email advising@ut.edu or call (813) 257-5757. For more information see Academic Exploration Frequently Asked Questions.
