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. You can choose a Meta-Major that fits your interests and then focus on related courses, grouped together to help you progress along that educational pathway toward a rewarding career.

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, you may have a general idea, and 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 in case you plan to earn an Associate degree and then move on to a bachelor's program at a university or even here at EFSC.
