Major Exploration Program
Our mission is to provide students the opportunity and guidance to actively, holistically, and responsibly engage in the Major exploration process. Through active involvement, students will explore themselves, discover and define their interests, while recognizing individual abilities that will lead to a successful education experience and timely degree.
Whether you are Undeclared or have declared a major but would like to explore other opportunities, the Major Exploration Program can assist with this process.
Being Undeclared, simply means you have declared to explore the many opportunities CSUF has to offer.
We understand the exploration process can be lengthy when done properly and your time is valued. For that reason we are allowing Undeclared and Exploratory students, as well as students ready to declare, the opportunity to make an appointment with an academic advisor.
Declare a Major Steps:
Step 1 :Assessing Personal and Career Interests
Taking some time to understand your personal goals and defining your core values, personality, preferences, interests, strengths, and skills will help you narrow down what it is that you really want to do and how you would like to develop your future career path.

Once you have a better understanding of your interests, the resources below can help you to gather an understanding of potential career options.
Step 3: Exploring Majors
Choosing your major is one of the most important aspects of the undergraduate experience. It is an individual yet shared experience among undergraduate students. It is an affirmation of your academic interests as well as a testament of your goals and aspirations.
