Meta-Majors

What are Meta-Majors?

Meta-majors at NMSU are two-semester academic maps designed as planning tools for students who have not yet decided on a program of study. Each meta-major represents a broad cluster of degree programs. The meta-major academic maps include courses (such as English and Math) that lay the academic foundation for all of the degree programs represented by the specific meta-major as well as course options that facilitate exploration of the various disciplines represented.

Click on the title of each Meta-Major to see a list of the majors included in each cluster. You can also download a copy of the meta-major map.
