What is I'm not sure what to major in or what classes to take? How and when are majors selected? How do students receive help selecting classes?
If students have decided on a major by the time they apply, they may declare their major on their application. If students are undecided, they will be classified as an Undeclared Major and retain this classification until the end of their sophomore year.
Each student is assigned an advisor before they begin classes at Winthrop. Advisors are faculty member in the student's selected field of study and are available to help with scheduling classes and registration, as well as career decisions. Students who are undecided will also have an advisor assigned to them. This faculty member will help the student choose courses that will transfer easily into many different majors. Students will first meet with their advisor during New Student Orientation and subsequently each semester before registering for classes.
