Majors and degree programs

Find the perfect major with ASU's degree search tool

With more than 800 degree programs to choose from — taught by skilled, student-focused professors — you’ll have the knowledge, experiences and opportunities to deeply explore your interests. Whether you're an undergraduate student pursuing a bachelor's degree or a graduate student pursuing a master's or doctoral program, we can help you find the program that fits you.

When you search undergraduate degrees, you’ll see a description of the program, a major map that shows the classes you’ll need to take each semester to complete the degree, and a list of careers (including salaries) you can enter with that major.

If you don’t yet know what to major in, ASU offers exploratory programs in several fields so you can get a taste of multiple areas of study before you commit to a program. Exploratory programs are designed so you don’t lose any time or credit toward your degree. Or you can use ASU’s exclusive major and career quiz, me3®, which can help you narrow it down.

Customize your academic experience

ASU offers multiple ways for you to start and finish your degree program that fit your individual goals or schedule. For example, you can earn two degrees at once, study abroad or work toward your master's degree as an undergraduate.

4+1 programs

Some programs allow you to work toward your master’s degree while earning your bachelor’s degree, saving you time and money. Learn more about the 4+1 program.

Double major

You can earn two degrees in the same time it takes to earn one, making yourself more marketable and well-rounded. You will select one major on the ASU Application and add the second major through your academic advisor.

Minors and certificates

Add a minor or certificate to broaden your knowledge and enjoy classes outside your major.

On-campus or online classes

You can choose to attend ASU either in person or online. If you choose in-person, you can take a few of your courses over the internet (we call them iCourses).

Classes on different campuses

One ASU campus will be your “home base,” but you can take classes on any of the other campuses, providing you a wider variety of experiences than most universities.

Choose your pace

Choose a traditional 15-week semester, or try a faster, more concentrated 7.5-week semester. Whichever you choose, the course content and credits are the same.

Summer sessions

You can catch up or get ahead in your studies by taking summer classes. ASU has three different summer sessions to be flexible with your summer plans.

Barrett, The Honors College

Students who meet academic requirements can apply to ASU’s Barrett, The Honors College, a nationally recognized honors experience.

Study abroad

Earn credits by studying in another country. Students who study abroad often consider it a valuable, life-changing experience.

Pre-law and pre-health

If you’re planning to become a lawyer, or doctor or other health care professional, get exclusive opportunities and guidance through the pre-law and pre-health programs.
