Undeclared Major

Interested in biology, but uncertain of what field to focus on?  Interested in environmental justice and environmental economics, but unclear which pathway to pursue? Would you like to build an interdisciplinary major that focuses on global issues, but looks at local impacts? For students passionate about environmental issues but undecided on a major, the College of Natural Resources does allow incoming freshman to be admitted as undeclared and explore major options in their first year.  Your undeclared student advisor can help you explore and plan your courses until you are prepared to choose your area of study.

Explore our majors and minors to find out more about how you can be a part of our community. Wondering how your interests relate to the CNR majors? Review our chart that maps interests to majors so you can find the best fit.

 If you're still trying to find your passion, UC Berkeley offers many services to help guide you, from career center advising and events to career counseling and assessment offered through our counseling services. Come to the Resource Center to learn more about all our majors and additional resources like "How to be a CNR Researcher."
