Welcome to the Queen's Major Maps!

Need help finding your way through Queen’s and beyond? Get major-specific advice on academics, extra-curriculars, networking, international opportunities and career development all in one place. These maps provide suggestions - you don’t have to follow all the recommendations. Use them to plan ahead, and find your own way at Queen’s!

While supplies last, print versions of the Major Maps are available at your academic department, Career Services (3rd floor, Gordon Hall) or at the Arts and Science Main Office (Dunning Hall, 1st floor).

Trying to print your own copy? Due to the unique map format, the easiest thing to do is get your physical copy at the locations listed above. If you still want to print your own, make sure you pick the “fit to page” option to force page 2 to print onto 8.5” x 11” size (unless you actually have 11”x17” paper – in which case we recommend downloading the file and printing from Adobe to allow you to select “Choose paper source by PDF page size”). 

Use this MyMajorMap tool to make your own customized major map.
