Even if you're unsure of a major, you can start your educational journey with an Associate of General Studies.

The Associate of General Studies (A.G.S.) provides courses for many college students who are uncertain about their major. Making a decision about your field of study and career is an important part of your experience at UAFS. A professional advisor will assist you in the decision making process. Through a comprehensive self assessment process, major exploration, career research, and goal setting, you can make informed decisions about your academic and career path. By choosing an A.A., you can remain undeclared until you have worked through this process.
