4  A major is simply a specific subject that students can specialize in  Typically, between a third and a half of the courses you take in college are in your major or related to it  By completing a major, you demonstrate sustained, high-level work in one field; and in some majors, you prepare for a specific career  A major can be changed once admitted (if GPA is high enough and if space is available in new area)

5  A major is the primary program of courses meeting the requirements for your degree  Minors are a chance to tailor your degree even further  Usually, the course requirements for a minor is about half the courses needed for a major  While it can be difficult to have a major and minor, if you plan and work out your courses with your academic advisor you can achieve both within four years

6  A major is basically the area you plan to pursue  A minor is something that you are interested in and may help you in your career

7  A double major consists of two majors in a single college  A student with simultaneous degrees has two majors from two different colleges and therefore graduates with two bachelors degrees ◦ For instance, a student may pursue simultaneous degrees in English (College of Letters and Science) and in Architecture (College of Environmental Design)

8  Graduation from Bloomsburg University (as well as many other universities) requires the successful completion of at least 120 semester hours, to include: ◦ Successful completion of all courses required in the major program  An average of 2.0 or higher in all courses required by the major program ◦ Successful completion of general education requirements  A minimum of 1.0 or higher in all general education courses

9  General education courses in higher education are fundamental to a well-rounded college and university education  Courses across disciplines allow students to gain interdisciplinary understanding, attain a broad range of skills and make active and positive contributions to society and in their careers
