Questions to Ask

The questions below may help you think through your major or career decision. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with an academic or career advisor to create a plan that’s right for you.


Determine what matters to you in terms of majors and careers, for example:

  • What are my top three work values?
  • Of majors I am considering, what courses are required?
  • Of careers I am considering, what is the employment outlook?
So What?
  • Reflect on the information uncovered in the “What?” stage.
  • Knowing my top three work values, to what extent are they satisfied by majors or careers I am considering?
  • Knowing the required courses of majors I am considering, how many sound interesting?  Does this seem like what I want to focus my coursework in?
  • Knowing the employment outlook of careers I am considering, am I still interested?
Now What?

Take your reflections and determine your next move.

  • If you have confirmed choices, you are ready to set some goals and move forward with your decisions.
  • If you still have unanswered questions, identify the concerns related to the questions and start back at the “What” stage.
