Everyone’s different when it comes to choosing their college major, but for Matt Rutz, the decision on what to study at the University of San Diego focused what interested him most — and what didn’t.
“Science was where I needed to be,” says Rutz, a biology major and a chemistry minor who will graduate next month. “I’d read business books and law books, but they were boring to me. But whenever I’d read a science book, I was always interested in it. (Biology) met all of what I wanted in a major. It’s the perfect major.”
Rutz spent his lunch hour Tuesday on some homework when he wasn’t answering questions from curious students about Pre-Health Studies programs offered through USD’s College of Arts and Sciences. His table was one of several representing various academic disciplines and programs for the Majors Fair, put on by USD Career Services.
For USD students still searching for the right fit, the event was one-stop shopping to learn about majors such as engineering, computer science, business, foreign languages, ethnic studies, anthropology, English and more; minors in Peace and Justice Studies and in Leadership; certificate programs from Paralegal to American Humanics; and to find out about study abroad opportunities.
