未决定:关于一个专业

Immaculata focuses on helping you find the major that matches your interests, 性格和能力.

College is a time for exploration and self-discovery; as a young adult you don’t need to know exactly what you want to do with the rest of your life. Though it may appear that everyone else knows his or her major when starting college, it’s actually more common not to know and that’s 100% okay! 而不是草率地选择专业, we recommend that you start out in a program designed to help you learn more about your options and more about yourself. Then, when you do declare your major, it will be a really good fit, perfect for you!

选择在 未申报/决定程序 will be the right path to begin your college journey if you:

  • have lots of interests and might not be ready to settle on a specific major
  • 是否对选择专业感到谨慎
  • want to learn about more options and really understand the possibilities for your future

Nearly 20% of all incoming students at Immaculata have an undeclared major.

Almost 75% of students nationwide change majors at least once.

Immaculata is well prepared to help you find the right fit. We find that students in our Undeclared Program are generally curious, 对不同的学科有很多兴趣, 在很多不同的领域都很熟练.

We’re excited about the opportunity to help you choose a major or minor combination that matches your interests and skills.

如何选择专业

Choosing a major is a big decision, but it doesn’t have to be scary. Try these four steps to start the process with confidence.

开始

现在正是探索的绝佳机会. You can look at areas of interest before you make a commitment. 以下是如何开始:

  • 完成你的 应用程序. In the “Major Information” section of the 应用程序, simply choose “Undecided.“一旦你进入印第安纳大学, you will be assigned an academic advisor specializing in exploratory studies, 谁将协助你完成学业计划.
  • Immaculata提供超过50种主要选择. 调查印第安纳大学在这里提供的所有课程.

未申报/项目亮点犹豫不决

  • You will work 关闭ly and collaboratively with your assigned academic advisor in the Office of Academic Success and 建议.
  • 当你踏上这段旅程, you will participate in specially designed programming, 包括集团事件, 个人建议, and completion of career/personality inventories to assist with exploring their values, 优势和性格类型.

挑战“犹豫不决”的神话

神话# 1: “我最终会弄清楚的.”

Just waiting and hoping will not necessarily help you explore. 你需要做一些工作来找到你的道路.

神话# 2: “我是唯一一个没有计划的人.”

You may feel that you are the only one who has not chosen a major. The reality is that more students enter as undeclared students than anything else.

神话# 3: “一旦我选择了专业,我就无法改变.”

有些专业比其他专业更容易改变, but no student should continue in a major that you don’t feel is the right fit.

 谬论# 4: “When I choose a major I’ll have chosen a career for my entire life.”

要明白专业是研究的一个领域, 你喜欢的科目, 不一定是职业选择. That major may lead to a specific career, but it also may not. 还记得, 太, that most people today change jobs and even career paths several times throughout their lives. 事实上, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that Baby Boomers, 平均, 换了11次工作.

误区5: “There’s a test that will match me to my perfect major”

There are self assessment inventories to use as 太ls for exploring yourself, majors, and careers. However, there is no one test or inventory that definitively matches you to the perfect major. 在选择专业时缩小你的选择范围, 澳门银河网上注册建议使用库存结果的组合, regular meetings with your academic advisor and IU’s career specialist, and research about majors that you will complete independently.

误区6: ”If I start as undecided, I won’t finish in time to graduate with my friends.”

Immaculata的大部分学位课程, you can declare your major during the Spring semester of your freshman year and be on track for graduation. 关于 85% of our undecided students declare their major at the end of their first year and still graduate on time. It is very rare that a student starting out as Undecided does not graduate in four years. 有时, making a quick decision about a major can lead to dissatisfaction and then a change in major after two or even three years. Changing your mind at that point can affect your anticipated graduation date.

误区7: ”If I commit to a single major I have to let go of all my other dreams and plans.”

We find that many students who are undecided about choosing a major have many interests. 还记得 that there are many ways to combine programs; the most common way is to add a minor in your second or third year at Immaculata. 所有学位都有选修课程的空间和要求, 所以你可以上课,探索其他兴趣, even when the courses are not part of your selected major.
