Welcome to Sophomore Year!
sophomore year at Queens College is exciting! At this important time, you set
the foundation for your academic path. You have a chance to reflect on your
first-year experiences while looking ahead and exploring the many opportunities
Queens College has to offer. Sophomore year is a period when academic
advising and choosing a major become more important, as you are asked to declare
a major at the end of your sophomore year. If you are still a bit confused
thinking about what courses to take and whether they are compatible to your major, don’t
worry; we are here to help.
The choices you make
now will shape the remainder of your academic experiences and prepare you for
your future. By the end of sophomore year, you will choose your major(s) and
perhaps a minor. You may also be interested in study abroad or a national
student exchange program. Most important, it is time to review your skills,
interests and values with a career counselor. Explore opportunities for career-related experience, such as an Internship, a part-time job or summer employment.
