Undeclared 401

There’s a class designed specifically for students who need more time before committing to a course of study. It’s called COLA 401, and in it you’ll explore major, career and internship options, and you’ll meet with an academic advisor regularly to build your academic plan.

Academic Advisors

Get answers to questions about declaring a major (or any other academic-related topic) when you need them. The pros at the University Advising Center are available between noon and 2 p.m. every weekday to help undeclared students in the College of Liberal Arts navigate their journeys.

Career Coaching

The dedicated Career and Professional Success center offers zillions of resources and holds a huge career and internship fair every semester. It’s a good idea to attend, even if you’re undeclared, so you can see the variety of opportunities available and discover which jobs sound most appealing.


Great Outcomes

There are about 140,000 living UNH alumni across the country and across the globe, and some of the most successful arrived at UNH with undeclared majors. So don’t sweat it. Enjoy the process of exploring your options; your passion will present itself before you know it.
