What is a major (mey-jer)? A specific area of study leading to a chosen career (i.e. Accounting, Psychology, or Biology).

What is a meta-major (meh-tah mey-jer)? Meta-Majors are a grouping of acadmeic majors that have related courses and sometimes fits within similar career areas.

The Purpose of Meta-Majors: 

Research has shown that students change their major on average four to five times.  The UC meta major structure is designed to support students as they explore related major areas.  Students interested in social science areas (i.e. psychology) are often interested in similar majors like sociology.  UC Advisors are knowledgable about all majors and specialize in their meta major. 

Below is the list of each meta-major area and their related majors as well as the UC Academic Advisors who support those areas.  To find YOUR specific UC Advisor please log on to SeaNet, select Student Services & Financial Aid, and then select Advisor Information.
