Prepare a list of majors and minors you are potentially interested in pursuing.
All undergraduate students interested in learning more about Ohio University's academic majors, minors, and certificates are invited to participate in the Majors Fair. The Majors Fair provides students with an opportunity to meet faculty, professional advisors, and students connected to each major, minor, and certificate program, to discuss their questions and interests.
What to Expect
How to Participate
Out of an abundance of caution we are offering a virtual Majors Fair utilizing Microsoft Teams.
Sign up to attend the Majors Fair above. On September 29, access the OHIO Majors Fair in Teams. Click the “Teams” icon on the left menu of the Teams app. Click “Join or create team” and enter code: y4mp56v.
Students can select from any academic program channel to visit with faculty and staff who will share important information about their programs.
Advising staff will be on hand to answer questions, help with What-if Dars, and more. We welcome all first- and second-year students, regional campus students who intend to relocate to the Athens campus, as well as College Credit Plus students who are interested in attending OHIO after graduation.

Prepare a List
Think on It
Think about what courses and career paths interest you.
Prepare Questions to Ask
- What are the required courses for this major?
- Is there a minimum GPA required to be accepted into the major?
- Are there departmental/professional associations I should join if I select this major?
- What jobs do Ohio University graduates obtain with this degree?
- Will a bachelor's degree in this major prepare me for a job in this field, or will I need to pursue a graduate degree?
