What is Major Blast?

Major Blast is a large-scale resource fair for UCLA Students! This event connects students with key academic information, resources, and services.

Through participation in the program, students have the unique opportunity to speak with academic advisors, counselors and/or faculty who can help them better understand majors, minors, specializations, coursework, prerequisites, workload, research opportunities, student organizations, and other general aspects of UCLA’s academic departments/schools.

  • Learn about adding a major, minor, or specialization
  • Get direction if you are unsure about your major
  • Review your degree progress with counselors
  • Develop ideas if you are still undeclared
  • Gain information from key campus services & resources

Meet with counselors and explore over 100 Majors and Minors!
