Career Services can help you identify your interests, skills, strengths, abilities, preferences and values. Whether you are exploring majors or career fields, the following tools can provide options for further investigation.
It isn’t unusual for students to be uncertain about their major. Choose your major based on your interests, aptitudes, and values—not those of other people.
Although in most cases the sooner you declare a major the better, you’re always able to change it later. Keep in mind that your major doesn’t necessarily determine what path your career will take.
Depending on your interests, you might benefit by choosing a second major or a minor; this makes you far more marketable.
