Fall Discovery Showcase: UGA Majors Fair

September 26, 11am-1pm
Tate Student Center, Third Floor Atrium and Concourse

 

All students are invited to attend the free Discovery Showcase for Majors, Minors, Certificate Programs and Double Dawgs Pathway program. The Discovery Showcase seeks to guide students on their major and career paths at UGA. The event is designed to assist not only undecided first-year students but to help all students help position themselves after graduation. We want to talk to students about how they can enhance their academic experience during their undergraduate career and be better prepared for life beyond the Arch—whether that's by adding or changing a major, or by pursuing a minor, certificate or an accelerated master's degree through UGA's new Double Dawgs Pathway program, which can save students time and money while positioning themselves for success after graduation.

It can be easy to miss opportunities when you are solely focused on your school or college. Even if you don't want to change your major or add a major, you should still look into other options, like minors or certificates that are available to students across schools and colleges. 

The event, sponsored by the Office of Instruction, the Exploratory Center, and the Career Center will offer students the opportunity to meet with career counselors, advisors and ambassadors from many of the schools and colleges. Students will also get to speak with representatives from the Career Center on career opportunities that align with majors. Students who are searching for a major may be introduced to an Exploratory Center advisor for an initial conversation and information about finding the right major.

UGA offers 136 majors across 17 schools and colleges, in addition to a multitude of minors, certificate programs and bachelor/accelerated master degree programs. Various majors will be grouped together based on areas of interest instead of by colleges.

Areas of Interest include:

  • Creative (Arts, Media and Communications)
  • Leadership (Business, Marketing, Public Policy and International Affairs)
  • Service (Education, Training and Social Services
  • Technology (Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science)
  • Culture (Language, Culture and Society, Humanities)
  • Nature (Natural and Physical Sciences)
  • Life (Life and Health Sciences–human and animal, Public Health)
