March Into Your Major – Table Registration

What is March Into Your Major?

March Into Your Major is an event for students who are unsure of their major, have chosen a major but are not sure it’s the right fit for them or students who are confident of their choice of major but are unsure of what careers they can actually pursue with their major. At the event, students will have the following opportunities:

  • See what majors/minors/certifications are offered at UTSA
  • Ask questions to help you learn if your choice of major or career path is a good fit for YOU!
  • Learn about the requirements for your major/minor and the process to change or declare your major/minor
  • Learn about potential internships and career opportunities

Goals & Desired Outcomes for the Event:

  • Students will learn about the academic timelines, the cost of changing their major, and the importance of utilizing their Career Assessment results.
  • Students will receive crucial academic and career information that will assist them in making an informed decision; which can decrease the number of times students change their major and increase the UTSA graduation rate.
  • Students will learn how to utilize the UTSA Guide app to explore Academic Advising Resources and the Work & Career Journey
