Highlighting College Majors

What's Major Idea?

Major Idea is a new series we're doing this year to highlight topics within disciplines as a way to introduce different majors. Find the display at the beginning of the Reference section of books.

If you're interested in learning about the major, talk to one of the Los Banos Campus' academic counselors. Learn about careers in that major from the Los Banos Campus' career counselor.
