Choosing a Major

Choosing a major can be a complex process requiring students to have an understating of their interests, skills, abilities and their personal values, as well as an awareness of careers and industries. Some students select their major based on its relevance to a career while others select their major based on a personal interest in a subject matter. Both strategies can lead to very successful careers, because many occupations don’t have a specific major requirement. A degree, plus experience and skills, is what will help a student prepare for a career or for graduate school.
