Observations:  Undeclared majors peaked in the mid 2000's and have gradually declined since, with a few minor fluctuations. Biology, Criminal Justice, Journalism & Mass Communications, and Management have all held "top 5" distinctions for highest enrolled programs over the past 10 years.
   
A student's "Official Major Program" is the program formally declared as a major and on file in the Office of the Registrar.


Footnote: Top 5 highest enrolled majors are noted in bold each year.
