Thinking about switching your major? It's not as uncommon as you think! Use this page to learn more about switching your major or adding a minor.
"If the plan doesn't work, change the plan - NEVER the goal!"
Miners are more likely to switch majors after the second semester of their first-year at Missouri S&T. Before making the switching, consider these things.
Making this decision is huge! But you aren't in this alone! Outside of your immediate network, make sure to discuss what's best for you with your faculty advisor, other faculty/staff in the field. Contact S&T Advising Center and Counseling Services for career counseling.
Instead of changing majors, maybe adding a Minor is a better option for you!
