Here are some things you can do to start the exploration process:
1. What interests you
Have you taken an interest inventory? You can meet with a career counselor and your academic advisor to discuss the process and determine your next steps
2. Your talents
Explore a rich, diverse course schedule each semester. Sometimes the best way to choose a major is to take a class and see if you like it. Think about things you are good at and ask yourself - Do I like to work inside or outside? Do I like to work with people or things?
3. Your values
Talk to your family and think about the traits you have inherited. Determine the type of work environment you want and review the major sheets for the fields you are considering. Talk with your friends about their majors and speak with faculty and advisors in the major.
4. How to match these with a career
Register with the Career Center and speak with a career counselor to determine the job prospects for the field you are considering. Take advantage of career fairs, workshops and utilize the career library.
