Least popular majors at TCNJ

flowers21flowers21 Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
Anyone have any thoughts on the lesser popular majors at TCNJ? Was thinking Communications or Political Science. I umderstand that teaching and business are the most popular and therefore more difficult to get in. Am I better off not declaring a major or declaring one that is less popular if I am wide open at this point? TIA!

    FYI You have to declare a major in your application to TCNJ

    I would apply to the major you are most interested in without regard for how popular or unpopular it is. If you choose a major based on admissions statistics rather than true interest, you may have a hard time switching later and/or have to go an extra semester to make up requirements. While many people do switch as their interests develop, I don't think it is wise to start out knowingly picking a major you won't stick with.

    Does TCNJ allow a second choice major in their app?

    If they do, that could help address your concerns.

    If I remember correctly, they do allow for a second choice.

    Agree with @carpoolingma, I don't think it's wise to try to "game" the application process. Declare the major you want and express passion about it in your application. That's the best way to present yourself. Good luck!
