Not sure what you want to major in? At Siena, we wholeheartedly embrace exploring students—our official name for undecided students. In fact, nearly half of our freshmen in the School of Business, School of Liberal Arts and School of Science start out that way, and with good reason: this is the best place to chart your course.

Rest assured, you won’t navigate your journey alone at Siena. Unlike many schools, we invest time and resources to help you find your way and enjoy every second. Here’s how you’ll discover your major:

  • An advisor, by your side. From the start, you'll have a dedicated academic advisor looking out for you—ready to help or answer your questions anytime you need guidance.
  • Talking it out. You’ll have lots of opportunities to chat with students about their majors, faculty across fields and career counselors who can make suggestions based on your skills, values, interests and personality.
  • Dabbling in everything. This is the best part! Take classes in subjects you think you might like, or topics you barely know anything about.
