(Oct. 9, 2017) – Students at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) can discover all the academic opportunities at Fall Into Your Major on Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the H-E-B University Center Ballroom (HUC 1.104). The event, hosted by The University Career Center, University College and Academic Advising, is free and open to all UTSA students.
Fall Into Your Major is an exploration fair that provides students with extensive information on selecting majors and career fields related to specific majors. It’s a chance for students who have not declared a major or are questioning what they may have already selected to understand their options.
"Our undergraduate students, particularly our first-year students, benefit greatly from this opportunity to explore the various majors we offer by visiting with the respective department chairs, faculty, academic advisors, upperclassmen, and peer mentors," said Tammy Wyatt, UTSA associate vice provost for student success. "I firmly believe that this event, in combination with our other first-year programming, has helped students to declare an appropriate major by the conclusion of their first-year."
Roadrunners will be able to explore academic programs and career-related information, meet with academic advisors to learn more about different majors and degree programs offered at UTSA and speak with student leaders to get their perspective. Students will also learn about the requirements for their major and minor and the process to change or declare a major.
“It is extremely beneficial to students to have an opportunity to have all of the professional staff and faculty in one room to talk with them and answer their questions,” said Audrey Magnuson, director of the UTSA University Career Center. “The synergy of the UTSA staff and faculty is a huge benefit to the student when making the very important choice of major.”
The event will also feature door prizes, including five $100 textbook credits from the UTSA RowdyCampus store.
