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 their major, but have narrowed down their options and would like specific information from a peer about a few majors of interest.
