Advising: Freshman Studies (Undeclared)

The Center for Student Success and First-Year Experience offers professional advising to all freshman studies (undeclared) students. Entering the University of Mississippi as a freshman studies major gives you the chance to explore your interests and majors before you make a decision. The largest cohort of entering freshmen is in freshman studies, so being unsure on a major is not uncommon. Your professional academic advisor will guide you through taking courses that fit your interests to help you choose a major. The University requires that you declare a major by the time you reach 45 credit hours.

The following links will direct you to a list of all MAJORS and MINORS offered by the University:

Another helpful tool is the Freshman Studies website.

In addition, the CSSFYE offers EDHE 201 “Career Decision Making” each spring semester. EDLD 201 focuses on helping undeclared students realize their strengths as well as possible career paths. The course is broken down into several modules including: Introduction, Self-Assessment, World of Work Research, Career Outlook from majors offered by our university, and Academic Advising through the transition phase. This course is closed to Freshman Studies majors that are  Freshman or Sophomore standing only.
