Choosing a Major

Finding the right major for your bachelor’s degree can be a challenging decision. In fact, many adult students who go back to school are not sure what they should study, often asking, "What degree is right for me?" It is important to take your time choosing a major so you can consider your personal goals, your educational goals, and your career goals.

CCU’s College of Adult and Graduate Studies allows undecided students to begin a bachelor’s degree program as an “undeclared major”. This way, you can start your degree by taking general education courses that are required for all students seeking a bachelor’s degree at CCU.

General education courses will help you gain a broad foundation of knowledge that covers every aspect of general education, including communications, humanities, history, behavioral and social sciences, biblical studies, mathematics, natural science, and computer science. Ultimately, these courses can help you develop a better feel for which major will be most effective in helping you accomplish your goals.

Not sure how to get started on your degree? Consider a 3-course Certificate Program to explore different subject areas.

If you are still deciding which major would be the best fit for you, talk with a CCU enrollment counselor about your options. They may be able to offer you some ideas based on your interests and professional experience.
