Exploring Careers and Majors
Initial questions you may have are “what can I do with my major?” or “what can I do if I declare this major?” The Career and Internship Center inspires you to move beyond the language of academic majors to articulate industries (fields), job titles (functions), and eventually employers (firms), to maximize internship, job search and graduate school admissions success. Resources below help you define academic as well as career goals in ways that can be transformed into strategies and desired outcomes.
This resource can be particularly helpful when you are choosing a major or when you are looking for career fields/job titles that are related to your major.
