Choosing a four-year college is an exciting time in your life when you are faced with many decisions. However, one choice that you do not have to make before entering college is selecting a major. About 25 percent of students begin their academic career at William Paterson as undeclared.

Making a decision about an academic major requires the right kind of professional advice and guidance. Our University has an approach, not common at other universities, that assists students through the process of deciding on an academic major.

To begin the process of selecting your major,
