Resources and Tips for MAJOR Success

Students who thrive in the College of the Arts rarely go it alone.  Below are some Tips for Major Success.

What to Know About your Major

The College of the Arts’ Departments and Programs web pages include an overview of your major plus program guidelines, links to curriculum, career information and faculty contacts.

Why “Advising”?

While you ultimately are responsible for completing your degree, there are many people here to help.  Meeting with an advisor will help you clarify your goals, choose the right courses, track your progress, and make decisions that will help you graduate on time.  Checking in each semester just makes good common sense (and required if you are a freshman, before you can register.)

Life as an Artist

Becoming an artist is a “calling” as much as it’s a “career.” The College of the Arts Career Services and University Career Services are here to help you shape your future.  Together these offices provide one-on-one advising, career-planning workshops, internship help, resume guidance and online tools to help you with professional exploration.
