Choosing an Area of Study is a database of over 125 UCLA majors and minors offered through the College of Letters and Science, School of the Arts and Architecture, Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, Herb Alpert School of Music, School of Nursing, and School of Theater, Film, and Television.
Degree planning begins as soon as you are admitted to UCLA. Tassels to the Left will help you find templates to help you plan your classes throughout your time at UCLA so that you can make the most of your experience here.
UCLA houses over 125 majors. Every UCLA major holds a high level of prestige, providing you with critical thinking, analytical, oral and written communication, reasoning, theoretical, and application skills. UCLA majors are not necessarily designed to funnel you into a specific career path. Contrary to the idea that your major defines your career, your major is only one of the many components that will contribute to your post graduate aspirations.
When considering a major, we advise you to pursue one that highlights your strengths and interests, and that facilitates academic excellence and personal enrichment. All majors at UCLA provide students with transferrable skills for a variety of dynamic fields and professions.
The MyMajor assessment tool will guide you in the process of understanding the many options that align with your interests and academic strengths, helping you to make an informed decision about your academic plan.
