Where can I get a list of undergraduate majors offered at IUP?
A complete list of undergraduate majors is available that links to detailed information about each program offered at IUP. The undergraduate catalog includes a list of required courses for each major.
Are there any tests that I can take to help me decide on a major?
Yes. We have the FOCUS-2 test that can be taken here in the MCEC that analyzes your personal interests and talents and gives you information on the careers that best match you. This test is offered at no charge. We also offer the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory. Each may be purchased at the IUP Co-op Store and returned to the MCEC for processing and interpretation.
Where do I go to change my major?
First, you need to speak with your current advisor, who will be the most helpful to you! Next, you need to get paperwork from both your current major’s college and your desired major’s college.
