Meta-Major Forums: Humanities and Fine Arts + Society and Policy

Meta-Major Forums

Over the course of the next several weeks the working groups will seek the input of additional campus stakeholders through a series of forums. This information gathering is vital because what is gleaned from the discussions will help assure a viable meta-major model is developed to help us keep our Pirates on board, promote timely graduation, and address student indebtedness. A final report will be submitted to the Provost in December.

What is a Meta-Major? Meta-majors are collections of academic major programs of study that have related career paths or coursework. The intent of meta-majors is to help incoming students become acquainted with the many related options in their general area of interest so they can make more informed choices of their major and develop an educational plan that leads to timely degree completion. 

After initial research on national models, the working group has proposed a draft plan that is authentic to ECU. The proposed plan is comprised of 7 main pathways that cluster similar majors together.

1. Business

2. Education

3. Fine Arts and Humanities

4. Health Sciences

5. Society and Policy


7. Exploratory (undecided)
