Frequently Asked Questions - Career Planning
How do I know what major to take for a certain career?
Some careers require certain majors, many don't. When you meet with your counselor, an Education Plan worked out for you by your counselor will outline how you will achieve your educational goal, which will, in turn, guide you into your major selection. It is not uncommon for some students to not immediately select their majors. Continued contact with your counselor will provide the extra guidance you may need in this area.
What if I don't know what I want to do? Do you have any tests that could help me decide?
There are vocational tests that your counselor can recommend you take. Some tests are available in the Career Center. We also offer a Career Development class which covers testing as well as job search strategies.
