When choosing your major, gather information and advice from many sources, especially the abundance of advisers you have available to you at Princeton. All you have to do is ask!
- Your faculty adviser may not be in the department(s) you are considering, but all advisers are helpful sounding boards who know about a range of disciplines and the prerequisites for various departments and know you! Talk with your adviser throughout the year and not only at course registration time!
- Each department has designated faculty contacts for pre-major advising.
- For a student perspective you can talk to student representatives designated by each department or to peer advisers (see departmental page for contact info).
- Majors need not determine careers, but the Career Services website showcases each academic department, offering a list of internships and career paths taken by Princeton students and alumni in that area of study.
- The following programs also have websites that should be helpful to you as you consider the connection between your major and possible career choices: Pre-law, Pre-business, Health Professions Advising Office, Program in Teacher Preparation
- Other programs, such as the Pace Center, the Community Based Learning Initiative, Fellowships Advising, Study Abroad, and International Internships, may seem less obviously related to major selection, but they are also excellent resources for thinking about the larger world and how you might tailor or supplement your program of study for specific opportunities after Princeton
- Finally, your residential college dean and director of studies are also available to talk to you about your choices.
