Tips and Advice Blog

Thinking about different majors, double-majoring, or still exploring? We’re here to help!

At Roger Williams University, we have over 45 majors and 70 minors. If you don’t know your exact major yet, that can sound pretty intimidating. Or, if you have a good idea of what you’d like to study, keep in mind that over 80% of RWU students add either a second major or minor into the mix. We feel that having lots of options helps you find passions that you might not have even discovered yet. No matter where you are in your exploration, Roger Williams has you covered.

Listen in as Jason Jacobs, Professor and Associate Dean of General Education, explains why it’s completely okay if you’re not quite sure what you want to study and why it’s actually a great idea to explore several different programs.
