Explore Majors/Careers

Building a meaningful career starts with self-understanding and knowing your career options. Watch the Major Decisions 101 video if you are undecided on a major. If you have declared a major, but are uncertain about what career paths you can pursue, watch the Exploring Career Paths video. Both videos will provide you with valuable tips and resources to further develop your career plan.

  

Once you've watched the video, use this Explore Majors/Careers Checklist as a guide.
