Majors and Minors

Our Students Don’t Just Learn, They Lead

An outstanding education is something many colleges and universities can offer, but the United States Air Force Academy goes even further. It puts you on the path to a rewarding career and helps you achieve the unimaginable with unique extracurriculars and a time-honored tradition of service.

World-class Academics with Real-world Applications

At the U.S. Air Force Academy, cadets enroll in rewarding academic programs with hands-on, real-world research opportunities to prepare for the global society that awaits them after graduation.

As with any other university, cadets have the option to switch majors or even add a second major as long as they meet all the requirements without excessive overloads. While you don’t have to pursue an academic minor, it’s highly encouraged as a way to enhance your studies.

Explore the Majors and Minors page at USAFA.EDU to see which major or minor is the right fit for you and your career in either the U.S. Air Force or Space Force.
