Starting college undecided is extremely common. Nearly 1 in 4 new students at UWM haven’t chosen a major. Our specialized advisors will guide you in your course selection, allowing you to explore your options while keeping you on track for a timely graduation.

Our undecided students choose from six exploratory pathways called metamajors, that allow you to explore multiple majors focused around a general academic theme. Our six metamajors are:

  • Arts, Design, & Innovation
  • Business, Industry, & Applied Technology
  • Engineering & Natural Sciences
  • Health
  • Humanities & Communication
  • Social & Behavioral Sciences
