  • Keeping Your Options Open?

    Entering the University of Mississippi as a Freshman Studies student gives you the chance to explore your interests and compare majors before you make your final decision. In fact, the largest cohort of entering freshmen at Ole Miss have not yet selected a major.

    Keep in mind as you explore, though, that your major does not always determine your career, and that college grads use what they learn during their college education in a wide variety of career fields.

    Skilled advisors in the Center for Student Success and First Year Experience (CSSFYE) will guide you in choosing classes during your first three semesters that will help you explore your interests while building the basic liberal arts core the University requires. Your goal is to declare a major by your fourth semester.
