Every student goes about choosing a major or career differently. Some students prefer to choose a major first; whereas other students may choose a career first and then find a major that can help them prepare for that career. Ideally, you will work to ensure that your major and career match your personal interests, skills and values. It's important to take time to research what major best meets your career goals and individual interests - we are here to help you along the way.
Some majors, such as Accounting directly relate to a career (Accountant). Many more majors do not directly relate to careers, but they provide you with fundamental skills for life. With the right experiences, you can be very successful with either kind of major. Most importantly, choose a major you love and work hard to succeed at it; get experience through jobs or internships, and work with the Career Center to help connect your major and experiences to your future career.
