Choose a Major or Career

You are in the main content


Make a Decision

The content below is a brief overview of how you may make decisions. We encourage you to schedule an appointment with an academic or career adviser to create a plan that’s right for you.

What?

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.
