Majors Expo

Majors Expo is a three-step, comprehensive program offered to Exploratory Studies/Undecided students to showcase the excellent academic programs available to students at Western.

Our students meet with their advisor to prepare for the event, attend the event, and then their advisor will follow up afterwards to create a plan. During the event, students will have the opportunity to discuss majors directly with faculty and ask questions to get information based on their preparation with their professional advisor.

Faculty from each academic department gather in one location and are ready to share information about majors, minors, internships, and career outlook with students. We encourage students to work with their advisor before and after Majors Expo, to develop a plan for attending and then for putting information learned into action. Students will also have the opportunity to engage with faculty and staff from every University office offering opportunities for engagement and fun, which will support your academic journey and your social experience at Western.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in this three step program which offers high contact with our professional advisors, guidance throughout the event, and follow up afterwards to create a plan based on student goals after the event.
