Selecting a Major and Career

Selecting a major and career is a very involved process, requiring careful evaluation of yourself as well as academic and occupational information. No single questionnaire, assessment, or person can tell you what you should pursue. In order to make the best choices, it is important to consider your unique combination of interests, values, abilities, personality, and experiences. Keep in mind that majors and careers can accommodate a wide range of interests; an exact fit is not necessary for academic and career satisfaction. The majors and careers above are suggested only as starting points for your exploration. Specific major and career decisions can be discussed in more detail with your academic advisor or career counselor.
