At Belmont, you'll develop an understanding of the path you'd like to take and create your future.


At Belmont, you can explore your future

If you haven’t chosen a major, you’re in great company – lots of students start college without a clear idea of what they want to study. And at Belmont, we think that’s a great way to begin your college adventure.

As a student here, you don’t have to declare a major until the end of your sophomore year. We encourage you to explore and experiment, and we’re here for you at each step of the way.

  • 建议. Once you declare a major, you’ll be assigned an advisor from your department. 在那之前, you’ll get expert advising from a full-time re搜索 librarian or a specially trained staff member who will help you navigate your time on campus.
