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.
