Let Your Passion Guide Your Studies
Some universities concentrate on academic ratings and numbers. At Colorado State, we concentrate on student experience. That means letting go of titles and structure and embracing an academic community that provides opportunity beyond your direct specialization.
Your major isn’t what you think it is. It’s late-night conversations about changing the world with your friends. It’s the moment you nod your head in class. It’s the set of experiences that turns a simple job into a lifetime of difference-making.
See what Colorado State has to offer below and then talk to your admissions counselor about how your passion fits into our programs.
EXPLORE ACADEMIC INTEREST AREAS
Arts, Humanities and Design
The borders of your notes are always covered in sketches and ideas. It’s not that you can’t keep your mind on what you’re doing, it’s that you can’t keep it off what you haven’t created.
Environmental and Natural Resources
Rolling down the car window and getting lost in the landscape is your favorite part of any trip. Big or small, you’re interested in how the natural world works and how humans fit into it.
Health, Life and Food Sciences
You see science intertwined in every part of a person’s life. You’re a dreamer who wants to improve people’s lives through practical methods and proven ideas.
Global and Social Sciences
You’re a people-watcher. You see a story in every person and want to find out more about the history, culture and circumstances that led to the moment you’re sharing.
Land, Plant and Animal Sciences
You were the first to notice the tadpoles in the pond and the bird’s nest in the tree behind your house. But, more importantly, you always asked questions about why they were there.
Organization, Management and Enterprise
You see the invisible lines between people and things. You’re always thinking about the next step in the process and work to bring people together to meet a common goal.
Physical Sciences and Engineering
Your world is a puzzle and you just opened the box. Your favorite question is: “But, how?” You don’t shy away from the big questions and enjoy the opportunity a problem presents.
UNIVERSITY HONORS PROGRAM
Challenge yourself to take your education to the next level. The University Honors Program is a community of academically-motivated students who live and learn together. Honors students have access to small seminar-style classes, personal faculty interaction, and priority registration.
As an undeclared-exploring student, you have the opportunity to explore your academic options and find the path that’s right for you. You can guide your exploration by choosing one of our seven major tracks, or search more broadly. Either way, your advisor will help you create a personalized academic plan.
At Colorado State University, your success comes first. That’s why we offer resources to support you through every step of your college experience.
