Majors on Main: A UD major fair

Academic Transitions students discover the range of majors and minors at UD

50 Academic Transitions (AT) students arrived at the English Language Institute‘s (ELI) classrooms at 108 East Main Street for a UD major fair, Majors on Main on Friday, September 29.

The students, mostly in stages AT2 and AT3, had the opportunity to speak with academic advisors from all seven of UD’s colleges and University Studies. Two representatives from specific majors were on hand: one from Landscape Architecture, a field growing in interest among AT students, and one from Computer Science, already a popular option with Engineering majors.

For advisors, it was a chance to share important information to help students prepare to be fully matriculated UD students, but also to help student discover majors and minors that they never knew existed!

Being exposed to the many fields of study available at UD was a spark for some students to connect to their passion. For others, it helped them learn how to cross discipline boundaries.

A Business student discovered the field of Oceanography, and is now considering this as a possible major.

A Civil Engineering major interested in designing more accessible buildings learned how the Human Services minor offered in the College of Education and Human Development could help him attain his goal.

To encourage students to learn more about the variety of programs available at UD, a filled Majors on Main passport — stamped at each station a student visited — could be turned in to earn students a raffle entry to win UD-themed prizes.

Blythe Milbury-Steen, CAP/AT Academic Advisor, coordinated the event.
