Thomas’s Answer

You should speak with a college counselor. They will help to guide you down the right path. However, the first thing to decide, is the college major. This will line up with a program that the school has already created for that degree. Even if undecided, there are prerequisite courses that span a number for degree programs.

Your university/college should have degree plans laid out. Your advisor will help make the path make sense! Check out the university website and look for a section that says something like "degrees and majors" and look for the major you are interested in.

Tyler’s Answer

Hi Victoriahna,
Once you've determined the major that you are looking to pursue, academic advisors for that major will generally provide you with a list of classes you're required to take.

Also, you can generally find the list of classes required on the school's webpage that helps to outline the specific requirements for a given degree.

I'm including a link to the school that I attended that helps to outline the classes that I took to get a degree in Business Administration (https://foster.uw.edu/academics/degree-programs/undergraduate-programs/curriculum/options/). This is going to vary widely across different disciplines and colleges, but wanted to give you a representative sample so you know what to look for.

Hopefully this helps!

Best,
Tyler
