There are many things any 18-year-old feels unsure about, and perhaps chief among them is the future. Despite this general truth, incoming college freshmen are asked to declare an undergraduate major that could have a significant impact on their career paths. Though it’s possible to change your major after declaring, that initial decision can have a lasting effect.

Given the importance of this decision, it’s never a bad thing to have plenty of choices. With this in mind, StartClass found the 26 colleges that offer the most undergraduate majors. We used the latest data from the National Center for Education Statistics for each school’s undergraduate major information.

There are 61 colleges that have at least 100 undergraduate majors, and the 26 schools on this list all offer 119 or more. Though some students at these colleges might still have trouble settling on one field of study, it won’t be for a lack of viable options.
