Concord University hosted the Major and Minors fair last week. It is an event for students to see available majors and minors Concord offers. The Major and Minors Fair is held every semester in the Ball Room. Concord offers over 70 majors, minors, and programs of study. Each program falls under one of two colleges: the College of Professional and Liberal Studies or the College of Science, Mathematics, and Health. With a daunting list of programs, students can easily be overwhelmed while choosing a program. The goal of the Major and Minors Fair is to allow incoming and current students to easily talk to professors about potential degrees and programs. The fair provides an exciting, informative environment where professors can explain the careers associated with their courses. Students are encouraged to ask questions, talk to professors, and find more information.
This event is found to be vital by many professors and students, helping them understand all that Concord has to offer. Despite difficulties, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was held online through Zoom. Dr. McKenna, a professor of history and philosophy, explained why the fair is so important.
Dr. Thomas McKenna
He said that the major and minors fair is “the number one thing” that sparks students’ interests and shows them what each program is truly about.
Dr. McKenna joyfully explained his program and provided vital information to students considering the history program. He also explains the uses of a history major and how many students eventually become teachers in elementary or high schools. Interestingly, the most common bachelor’s degree for law students is history.

Just like Dr. McKenna many other professors love the major and minors fair, and being able to talk about their programs. If you are interested in finding out more information about certain degrees and programs Concord has to offer, visit the website and catalog.
