World of Career Discovery

This World is designed to encourage incoming freshmen who have not yet decided on a major to explore the possibilities. The World of Career Discovery is designed for incoming freshmen who would like to explore different majors, minors, and career options while learning practical internship and job search strategies. By being in this World, students can further explore their interests, skills, and values and learn how to make the most of their college experience. Through coursework, guest lectures, networking, and community service, students "try on" a variety of fields, and move toward deciding on a major.
