Choosing Your Major

The University of Cincinnati offers students over 300 academic programs. Some students are initially overwhelmed by the process of choosing the "right" major. Therefore, we have designed this page as a resource to help you see how your passions may relate to many different Cincinnati programs. 

All University of Cincinnati majors offer "direct admission." This means students can apply for and be admitted to their first choice major. Approximately 50% of students will receive an offer of admission to their first choice program. Career goals can be fulfilled within multiple majors and we encourage you to research all your options considering each program's curriculum, student support resources, and experience-based learning opportunities.
