Explore: Exploring different majors and careers

Figuring out a major may seem easy for some and challenging. When trying to figure out your major, remember that there is no right answer and many majors can lead to the same type of work. After using these resources it's okay to still not know what you want to major in. Take advantage of the Career Services office to help you figure out what your interests, skills and values are. Please see your faculty adviser for all questions regarding academic advising.
