Some majors may be more STEM obvious than others, so it's important to familiarize yourself with the range of possibilities to explore. Below you will find a list of STEM majors broken into two parts:

  • LIST I: Majors that focus exclusively on mathematics, natural sciences (including physical sciences and biological/agricultural sciences), engineering/engineering technologies, and computer/information sciences.
  • LIST II: Majors with a math/science foundation that also help build the skills for those interested in many STEM career fields.

    Note: Many of the majors below are competitive majors and it is important to check with the college about admissions requirements and application procedures.
