Junior-Year Resources

Academic Program Guides

Academic major guides provide specific information for each major offered at UT. You can research a specific major to find out career and salary information, and you can read about special programs and highlights for majors.  These guides can be especially helpful for juniors in helping you get connected to your major.

Career Services

On the career services website, you can find information on internship and job opportunities both on and off campus through Hire-a-Vol. The What Can I Do With This Major? website is also a terrific resource when exploring major and career options.  Please be sure to enroll in CE 404. This class will assist you in identifying what you want to do with your major and will help you take the appropriate steps that will lead you to lifelong career success!

Center for Leadership & Service

The mission of the Center for Leadership & Service is to educate and engage all students to lead and serve the global community.
