Majors


Variety. Challenge. Excellence. With more than 90 undergraduate majors across 12 colleges, we have you covered.

Pick one, pick two or even create your own major through our Individual Studies Program. Explore a new interest with a minor or certificate program, or take part in one of our pre-professional programs.

Students interested in computer, data, and information sciences are encouraged to consider all of the related undergraduate majors we offer. These majors provide students the opportunity to create systems that aid in the processing and communication of information and data.

Need some time to consider your options? No problem. We offer Letters & Sciences, which provides advising for students who haven’t decided their major or are preparing for one of our Limited Enrollment Programs. Remember, when you apply, your preferred major is not considered in whether or not you are admissible to Maryland.
