A new student may be uncertain about the specific academic program he or she wishes to pursue. The undeclared major gives a new student the opportunity to explore the general area of interest more broadly for a limited time before choosing a specific major.
Three freshman-year undeclared major programs are available on the Melbourne campus: General Engineering or General Science (College of Engineering and Sciences) and General Studies (College of Psychology and Liberal Arts). The general studies program is for those who may wish to pursue a major in business administration, communication, humanities or psychology. More information on these programs may be found under each college in the Degree Programs section of the online catalog.
