At Ball State, you have lots of options when it comes to choosing a major. If you’ve known since you could talk that you wanted to be a paleontologist or a venture capitalist, we can keep you on track. If you might not be sure what you want to study—or change your mind once you get here, no worries. We can help you evaluate your interests, set some goals, and establish a plan for your education. And just to be sure, you’ll get plenty of hands-on, immersive learning opportunities that will let you test-drive career paths and fields of study as they are in the real world. And when you make your decision, we will prepare you for your life, not just a degree.
To help you along the way, we have supportive professors. They’re passionate about their disciplines and about teaching. Their creative teaching methods allow personal learning that is based on your needs and interests and push the limits of the standard curriculum. We also keep our class sizes small to allow faculty and student interaction and personal mentoring.
