Self-Service Tools and Resources for Selecting a Major:

You may be wondering, “What can I do with this major?” or “What can I do if I declare this major?” We encourage you to begin articulating "major" through industries, job titles, and eventually, employers. This way you can make an informed academic decision that leads to maximized internships, job searches and graduate school admissions success.
