Not sure what career path you'd like to follow? Confused about where different majors may lead? That's OK. Many students find it helpful to explore college majors before committing to one field. You'll get plenty of help narrowing down your choices when you apply to Edinboro University with an Undeclared Major.

You Are Not Alone.

An estimated 75-85% of college students change their major at some point during their undergraduate careers across the United States (Education Advisory Board, 2016).

Why Edinboro Stands Out.

Edinboro University is one of Pennsylvania's most distinguished centers of learning and research. With small class sizes and an internationally recognized faculty, you can rest assured you will receive a high quality, affordable education, even if you are not yet sure where your degree will take you.

Whether you are interested in the arts or sciences, education or nursing, pre-professional programs or business, you will have plenty of options, even if you change your mind once or even twice in your college career.

As a first-year student, you will be assigned an advisor who will work with you to discover your unique interests, talents and goals. You'll start with core academic courses and have the opportunity to select electives that may later become your major course of study.

Our experienced faculty and staff are excited to help you navigate toward a successful future. As your mentors and guides, they will ensure you receive a well-rounded education that you can complete in a timely manner.

Also good to know: Edinboro University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
