Career Pathways Via Meta-Majors

Meta-Majors may sound complicated but the concept is simple: they represent eight career pathways, identified by the State of Florida, as a way to group academic programs into clusters with related courses. Each Meta-Major Pathway has identified Gateway Courses in English and Mathematics — the first courses that provide transferable, college-level credit which allow students to progress in their program of study. When Florida Legislators created the Meta-Major concept, they also required that first-time-in college students meet with an advisor. While you may not know exactly what you want to major in, but have a general idea of the topic you want to study, the advisor can help you choose the right classes for your academic success. Advisors are available on all four Eastern Florida campuses to discuss Meta-Majors and Gateway Courses and to help you review transfer institution requirements.
