Majors & Careers

Exploring Careers by Major

You may wondering, “What can I do with my major?” or “What can I do if I declare this major?” We encourage you to move beyond the language of academic majors to articulate industries, job titles, and eventually employers, to maximize internship, job search and graduate school admissions success. Resources below help you define academic as well as career goals in ways that can be transformed into strategies and desired outcomes.
