What Can I Do With This Major?

question marksMany students ask, “What can I do with this major?” The question really needs to be “What do I want to do?” This posture guides you into exploring yourself and the many possible fields of study. Majors and careers do not always have a direct relationship. Some careers, such as nursing and engineering, require certain majors; however, nurses and engineers can also have careers in education, banking, or marketing. Careers often develop in unusual ways that cannot be predicted by the major, and a certain major does not by any means guarantee a job.

The website, What Can I Do With This Major? was created by the Office of Career Development, which helps you connect majors with careers.
