What to Do If You Change Your Mind About Your Major

It’s not unusual at all to be undecided about your major, since it will impact what you do for the rest of your life. Plus, you don’t have to declare your major until the end of your second year. And if you’re just not sure where to begin in choosing a major, UF has an exploratory option. The exploratory major allows you to take many kinds of classes to see what you’d be interested in, and to take classes based on what you like and don't like, allowing you to narrow down what major you’d want.

College is a life changing experience, and it may influence you to change your major. If you decide to change your major, it’s not that big of a deal, especially because you can change your major as many times as you want. Recent statistics show that almost 40% of UF students change their major by the end of their first year, and around 61% of students change their major by the end of their second year.

The main thing is to pay attention to what you like or dislike and go with your gut (even if it changes its mind from time to time).
