Undecided? Learn about our Pathway Program.

Starting college without picking your degree? Don’t worry—lots of people do.

That’s why we created the Pathway Program. It helps students like you get started in college, explore your interests, and find your path toward graduation.

Curious to know more? Take a peek at this preview from our brand new Pathway Program guide: 

College keeps getting closer, but you still have no idea what you’ll major in. And to make matters worse, it seems like all your friends and fellow students know exactly what they’ll choose. They’re even excited to get started. So annoying!

Are you doomed to aimless academic wandering through the first year of school? Will you give up and settle on an uninspiring major “just to pick something”?

No! With this guide in hand, you’ll just be fine. (Trust us on this one.)

Not choosing a major while you’re still in high school isn’t the grave problem you think it is.

One in 10 students at IPFW begins school without having chosen a major. At some schools, that number is closer to 20 or even 40%. So take a deep breath; you’re not alone. 

And those friends who seem so confident about their majors right now? Up to 80% of them will change their major at least once before finishing college. So there.

Different students take different approaches to choosing a major. Some jump from major to major until one clicks—possibly delaying graduation in the process. Others can’t choose just one, so they pile on double (and sometimes triple!) majors and minors in hopes of covering all their bases. 

If you’re still looking for your major when you get to campus, we’ll help you find your way with our Pathway Program. It gives students like you great opportunities to:

  • Learn about the different career paths that are open to you
  • Get excited about one
  • Decide on a major that will get you there
