Most universities in the United States require you to take general education or core classes, which give you the opportunity to study a wide variety of academic subjects – not just your major or focused field of study. These courses—ranging from writing to science classes— are also referred to as “liberal arts,” and will ensure you graduate with a well-rounded education. Students in the United States typically are not required to declare a major until the end of their second year of study. Many students will remain “undeclared” or “undecided” on their major and use these two years to explore their academic interests before settling on a major. In other countries, students are typically required to declare their field of study when they apply, or they must apply directly to (and be accepted by) that specific college within the university.
