Meta Majors

Meta majors are groupings of common academic/career interests under one umbrella. By selecting a meta major, it puts you on a path that allows a measure of flexibility if you choose to change your major. Read the descriptions below and consider which one best matches your interests. If you are undecided (which is completely okay!), you would consider the Exploration meta major. 


This area includes business related majors, which are available in several different colleges at UCO. There are many majors that prepare you to manage and lead people, analyze data and numbers, communicate in the business world, and even start your own business.



This area includes majors that involve learning about people, society, culture and how they intertwine. For students who love learning about people, cultures and relationships, these majors may be a good fit. 



In these majors, you learn more about how the world works through research, analysis and application. You can cultivate intellectual advancement, develop new models/theories and analyze data to problem solve within your discipline. Several of the health-related majors involve helping people become healthier and well in all areas of their lives.



Majors in arts, design and entertainment explore performance and/or production of various art forms as well as theory, history and the impact of art on society. This field of study is a great fit for students who like to create art and also for those who enjoy and value art, design and media.



UCO offers education programs in a variety of subject areas as well as majors which open up career opportunities in teaching, training and educating others in a variety of settings. Many of these majors can also prepare you to provide vital daily services to the public locally and internationally.  


If you are wondering how you will narrow 100+ majors into one, you’re not alone. UCO is a great place to explore majors if you are still undecided. There are many resources available to help you learn more about the majors and which ones might be the best fit for you.
