New students can be intimidated by the long list of degree and certificate choices presented to them when they are researching their options or submitting an application. A poor choice of major or degree/certificate pathway can add additional time and cost to their college journey. It can also lengthen their time to graduation or even cause them to dropout. Meta majors, or what we will call 'areas of study', were developed in response to the need for a clear path to completion with a narrowed set of choices that support their success. These areas will group degrees and certificates by interest and create a clear pathway toward a career field while providing them room for additional career exploration.
