    Students who have already gone through the process of selecting a major were available to talk about their experiences.

Hundreds of first-year students who have yet to declare a major crowded into Grant Hall on Thursday evening for the first Arts and Science Majors Night.

Students were able to meet and ask questions of students who have already gone through the process, with booths being set up by each Departmental Student Council (DSC).

Attendees were able to compare the different programs they are considering and explore if they line up with their interests and future goals.

Queen’s also recently created “major maps” for all 44 of its undergraduate programs. The maps provide advice on academics, extracurricular activities, networking, international opportunities and career development, providing support before, during and after students earn their degree.

Students can access print versions of the maps through their faculty or department advisers. Career Services has also posted the maps online in web and accessible formats.

The Faculty of Arts and Science also has information that can be found online and posted a new video to help student in the process of choosing a major.

Majors Night is a partnership between Career Services in the Division of Student Affairs, the Faculty of Arts and Science, the Arts and Science Undergraduate Society (ASUS), and the Arts and Science Departmental Student Councils.
