Major & Career Exploration
Our Major Exploratory Associates are the first point of contact at the Stuckert Career Center to start your conversation about the career decision-making process. Educational and career decisions are some of the most important you will make in your lifetime. Our experienced advisors understand the breadth of UK majors and coursework required. Some students come to college very certain about their major, some have tentatively decided but have some doubts, some are choosing between two or three options, and other students are completely exploratory. Wherever you are in the decision-making process, your journey can begin with a conversation at the Stuckert Career Center. Stop by during our drop-in hours or schedule an appointment. We are here for you!
