Established in 2018, The Major Event aims to:

  • Foster student confidence in future or current choice of academic major (and/or) minor
  • Connect students with UMBC alumni to better understand the impact of current academic pursuits on post-graduation career pathways
  • Increase knowledge of how campus offices offer support and resources during the major exploration process and in the development of co-curricular plans
  • Encourage and promote relationships and meaningful information exchanges between academic department representatives and prospective students interested in their majors.
