Choosing a major is a big decision, that for many, requires research to ensure it is an appropriate fit for one’s strengths, goals, and needs. The Career Center offers resources that allow for self-exploration and awareness so that you can move at your own, informed pace.
The Focus 2 Self-Assessment is a great first step in exploring a major or career path. At the end of each assessment, you are given a list of career options that match your results. Remember, the results are just career areas to explore. We recommend that you schedule an appointment to speak with a Career Counselor to discuss results and create a plan for next steps.

Once you find a major of interest, this resource dives into the various areas that the major can help you break into. At the bottom, you’ll find several links about the job market(s) within the major, job/internship boards, and professional associations.
