Major Options at Western Oregon University

Does anyone have info on Western Oregon University's major offerings? I'm super interested in the school, but I don't quite know if they have the major I want. Additionally, what's the process like for declaring a major there – any hurdles or tips I should know about?

Western Oregon University offers a wide range of major offerings encompassing many popular fields of study. These include areas such as Business, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Education, and several others. I'd encourage you to go directly to the school's website or connect with their admissions office to inquire about the specific major you're interested in.

As for declaring a major at most colleges, including Western Oregon, there are some essential steps to follow. Usually, when you apply to the college, you have the option to declare your intended major. But this declaration is often not binding, and you have until usually your second year to declare an official major.

To declare a major, you would typically need to complete and submit a major declaration form, which is often available on the university's registrar or department's website. You might also need to meet with an academic counselor or department advisor who can provide more detailed information about your chosen field and guide you through the requirements for your major.

In terms of any hurdles or complications, be aware of the requirements that are tied to each major. Some majors might require you to maintain a certain GPA, or won't allow you to declare if you're already in your second or third year. Doing research ahead of time and talking to the advisors in your department will help you navigate the process without too much stress.

Remember, choosing a major is a significant step in your academic journey. Take your time, do your research about your chosen field, and make sure to ask for help or advice when needed as you make this important decision.
