Choosing a Major
At Dakota Wesleyan, we are proud to offer a variety of majors and minors spread throughout our three distinctive colleges. By selecting a combination of programs, you can truly design a path of learning that is entirely your own.

Choosing a Major
But what if you don’t know? Or, what if you know you want to major in accounting but can’t decide on a minor? Not sure what you want to major or minor in? Wondering what you want to do with your life? Overwhelmed by career decisions?

The first step in choosing a major is to relax! The General Education program at Dakota Wesleyan is designed to help you explore your options and experience a variety of courses before making your decision. Faculty, your adviser, the Center for Talent Development and the student life department are all ready to assist you. And, if you’re really panicked, just remember: you can do anything and go anywhere with a strong liberal arts degree.

Your next step in choosing a major is to know and understand all of your options. Dakota Wesleyan offers 48 different programs of study. Some of these might interest you, while others will not appeal to you. A helpful way to narrow down your search for a major is to cross out each of the programs you know you are not interested in. Then, research the programs you don’t know much about (American studies? Behavioral science?) to see if they sound like a good fit. 

What can you do with that major?
