What can you do with your major? This question poses a challenge to many college students. With careful planning and preparation, your experiences and career-related skills can prepare you to optimize your degree options in ways you may have never considered.

Based on our degree programs, the Career Development Center has profiled majors from the five colleges and has provided career options correlating to the majors. This information provides an expansive view of potential opportunities available to you.

Remember, your major does not always determine your career. Do not cheat yourself by believing that you have it all figured out and know exactly where you want to wind up. Permit yourself to explore and discover new frontiers. College grads use their education in a wide variety of fields. In addition to considering the options listed, we encourage you to launch an independent effort to explore and learn even more about the wide range of career options available to you.

It is very possible for you to wind up in an occupation that lights your passions and satisfies your soul while enabling you to make a noble contribution to society. Good luck!
