'The Sims 2: University' Options for Majors

Choose a major that complements your Sims' current skills and aspirations

"The Sims 2: University" is the first expansion pack for the life simulation game "The Sims 2." The university expansion pack requires young adults studying at a university to declare a major before their junior year. Sims can declare a major under the College menu by using the computer or a phone. Majors are linked to specific careers, and each major requires different skills that complement the specific career tracks.

Any Sim who doesn't enter a major is automatically enrolled as a Philosophy major.

The Total Skills Required list under each major is the total amount of skill points needed for a Sim to fulfill all the requirements of the major during four years of college.
