Tougaloo College offers 29 majors. In addition to these twenty-nine majors, six allow students to add one or more special emphases such as Accounting, Business Administration, Community Health, Computer Science, Health Education, Journalism, Recreation for Special Populations and Social Work.

Students are expected to complete most of the requirements in general education by the end of the sophomore year. At this time, students must select a discipline or area in which they will concentrate their study. The discipline or subject area selected is referred to as a major. Through pursuit of a given major, students should develop a basic understanding of the concepts and principles of a discipline as well as of skills associated with related practical applications.
