This week, C4C’s C3C’s and Cadet Candidates from the Prep School got to visit Fairchild Hall and talk to upper classmen and teachers about the Majors offered at USAFA. Each semester, the Academy hosts Majors’ Night to help cadets explore their options by speaking with department representatives and consulting with academic advisors or AAOCAs.
Cadets can declare a major from day one, but it’s recommended that you wait until later in your fourth-class (freshman) year to allow for course adjustments during your first semesters. To declare a major, a cadet meets with their Associate Air Officers Commanding for Academics (AAOCAs). Cadets must declare a major by October of their third semester.
Majors offered at USAFA are Aeronautical Engineering, Astronautical Engineering, Behavioral Sciences & Leadership, Biology, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Cyber Science, Computer & Network Security, Computer Science, Economics, Electrical Engineering, English & Fine Arts, Foreign Language Studies, General Studies, Geospatial Science, History, Legal Studies, Management, Mathematics, Meteorology, Military & Strategic Studies, Operations Research, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, and Systems Engineering.
