For Data & Real People
Majors and careers can be clustered into 6 broad interest areas that correspond to 6 different personality types. Based on the research of Dr. John Holland, this clustering system provides a preliminary way to identify undergraduate majors and careers that might be a satisfying fit for you. Because personality, majors, and careers are too complex to be described by a single interest theme, you will see that the lists below have a 3 letter code to more accurately describe majors and careers using a combination of related interests (in order of importance). This “Realistic” sheet reflects the interest cluster that ranks the “R” theme first, but be sure to review the other 5 sheets to see if any of those themes (A,I,S,C,E) are more descriptive of your interests.
