As for the least popular majors, these tend to be ones that are newly established at Villanova or ones that have an extremely narrow field of study that is not in-demand in the workplace. This list includes classics (3 current majors), art history (8 current majors), and foreign languages. These majors tend to be combined with other majors to increase career prospects and make one more competitive.

If you do not have a major yet, a good place to start is by asking people about their majors and how they came to decide. Then, assess your skills and interest areas. Career Services offers one-on-one sessions with career assistants to help you plan out your academic career at Villanova and investigate possibilities for the future. They also have an entire page on their website dedicated to answering the question "What can I do with my major?" Pick a major that works best for you, because you'll be doing all the work to earn the degree and then apply it.
