Choosing a major involves a combination of your interests, values, and abilities.

At Centenary University, students who are undecided have time to explore their passion and skills to build a solid degree for a confident career path. Centenary is a great place to be Undecided. You have all the benefits of a small university (small classes, faculty access, supportive academic culture), plus a wide range of majors and disciplines. In addition to liberal arts (natural sciences, social sciences, humanities), Centenary also boasts excellent pre-professional programs in Business, Education, Criminal Justice, Equine, Social Work, Fashion, and Theatre.

The Core Curriculum

Centenary University uses a core curriculum of 40 credits that help you fulfill requirements while learning about different aspects of your interests and values. Elective courses allow you to explore far-reaching ideas that you might have been toying with to see where your passion takes you.

You Are Not Alone

If you come to Centenary as an Undecided major, you will be with other Undecided students in your Nature of Work class. Here you have the opportunity to look more deeply into potential major and career interests.

Undecided vs. Individualized Studies

Creating your own major and applying to college as an undecided student are not the same thing. Most students who begin “Undecided” eventually declare a traditional major. Individualized Studies students typically have well-defined interests that happen to cross disciplinary boundaries.

Financial Aid

Being able to pay for attending college is no easy task. Located in the Seay Building, the Office of Financial Aid offers assistance to you and your parents to ensure that you have the financial resources to focus on your education.
