Majors in Minutes

Majors in Minutes

Majors in Minutes is hosted during the fall semester by the Office of Academic Advising to allow UNI students the opportunity to explore majors from their peers who are currently enrolled in those programs.

Using a group. speed-dating approach, a student will spend 8 minutes with a UNI Senior peer to learn about the specific major of interest through discussion, reviewing, and by asking questions.  When the time is up, a student can choose to either stay at the table or move on to learn about a different major. Students can visit as many or as few majors as they would like!
