Meet with an Academic Advisor at the Academic Advising Center (815/753-2573). Academic Advisors can help you determine your values, interests, and skills, suggest a major, minor, or career path, and assist you with course selection. They also refer students to other campus offices for personal, academic, and career counseling; academic skills development; and financial aid.
Look at all the NIU majors. Begin to research majors that look interesting to you and/or eliminate programs that you know you don't want.
Pursue course work and co-curricular activities that expand your knowledge about fields of study and help you develop additional skills. This will aid you in self-assessment in the major and career decision-making process. Computer, foreign language, leadership, and communication skills are valuable in any profession. Review NIU Undergraduate Degree Paths to familiarize yourself with specific department/program requirements.
