University of Minnesota

The Major Network is a University of Minnesota cross-college network that connects exploring students with upperclassmen who are passionate about their majors. This way, interested students can get a firsthand look at what a major is really like. Mentors answer questions about their passion, their coursework, internship searches, career goals, and more to help exploring students learn about the major.

The Major Network consists of two groups of students:

Upper-level Mentors are students who are passionate about their major and have completed a significant amount of upper-division coursework within their particular major.

Exploring Students are students who are unsure of what to major in and would like specific information from a peer about particular majors of interest.

The Major Network is flexible in terms of time commitment, so you can apply whenever you desire during the academic year. If you would like more information on the Major Network program, please contact the Major Network Coordinator at

Please note: The Major Network will not be matching students for the rest of Fall semester and will remain closed for winter break. Any applications for the Major Network will be received at the start of Spring semester. Thank you for your patience!
