Undecided? No problem!

It is very common for students to be undecided on a career path after high school. College is the time for students to explore various interests and discover new opportunities. Benedictine University Mesa encourages students who are undecided to focus on their general education classes, which are required for all majors, and to speak closely with an advisor to help prepare their academic course offerings. Benedictine is located inDowntown Mesa, surrounded by culture, diversity, art, music, technology and thriving businesses. It’s the best place for a student to explore their options and learn more about themselves. 

Students can also minor in any of our majors, double major, or choose a major that has a specific concentration. 


"Many students start off their college career without a specific declared major, and many more will change their major at least once during their time in school. This is all acceptable, but what does it mean for you? If you’re not sure what you want to study, then spend your first year or so focusing on your general education requirements that build a foundation for upper division courses in every major, and explore what will be of most interest to you through completing a variety of core and elective courses, meeting with your academic advisor, connecting with career services, and attending workshops and events about different academic and professional paths.” - SHAY MASTERSON, Career Success Coordinator
