Step #4 - Select a Major and Classes

Selecting your major and registering for classes is a critical step in the process of attending MTSU.

Decide on a Degree/Career Path

A full list of degrees offered at MTSU can be found here.

If you are undecided, the  Career Development Center has a number of useful tools to help you determine the best degree for you.  Also, stop in and talk to Ms. Heather Conrad (KUC 124), the VetSuccess on Campus counselor. She can help you with vocational exploration, assistance in selecting a suitable career/major, as well as job placement assistance, and coordination with local veterans’ employment representatives and training services.
