Find Your Major
It is important that you choose the right major by combining what you like to do with what you are good at. View below the majors LAU offers. If you need help with choosing your major, this page might help you.
Minors are optional mini-specializations in a particular subject. The subject could be related to the major, or very different. For example, someone could graduate in computer science with a minor in English Literature. The earlier you choose a minor, the better, so that you can plan to complete all your courses (major and minor) at the same time.
