RSS Expo for Majors and Minors

What is the Majors/Minors Expo?

What is the Majors/Minors Expo?

  • a place where undergraduates can do a kind of one-stop shopping for majors and minors (it is not just for first and second year students but also for juniors who might want to pick up a second major or minor)
  • a chance for non-LSA students to explore LSA minors
  • a chance to talk with department advisors and faculty about major/minor requirements
  • a chance to talk with undergraduate majors in a department (why did they choose this discipline? what do they enjoy most about the department? what kind of work do they do in the major/minor? The student perspective is very helpful, so if possible, see if your majors can take shifts at your table)
  • a chance to find out if courses from study abroad might ever be included in that major
  • a chance to find out what opportunities exist in that department (Biological Station, Camp Davis, New England Literature Program, etc.)
  • a chance to find out about any internship/career-related opportunities available through that department, or simply if it's possible ever to get academic credit from that department through an internship they find on their own
  • a chance to find out what kinds of career paths the department's alums have followed (not every department has this kind of information, but more and more departments are realizing its value and working to keep in touch with their alums, both for future department programs and to show students how their discipline has launched other undergraduates into a broad range of professions)
  • a chance to consider interesting disciplines to look at for meeting certain general requirements (cool ways to meet humanities or natural science or race and ethnicity, etc.)
  • a chance to talk with people in general advising, the Career Center, some of the learning resources such as Sweetland Center for Writing, Language Resource Center, Science Learning Center, representatives from the Ed School about teacher certification, non-LSA units, pre-professional advising ( law/business/prehealth advisors), etc.
  • a chance for them to broaden their thinking about disciplines they might explore, directions they might try
  • a chance for them to shake up some assumptions about certain kinds of fields
  • a chance to walk away with helpful materials/handouts from departments
