Exploring majors and careers

There are many different types of careers and some require specific degrees, majors, concentrations, certifications, and more. Some careers will only require that you have a bachelor’s degree and expect you to learn job specific skills in the workplace.

You can explore different majors, description of those majors, Graduation guidelines, and links to their departments, by clicking on the Major Academic Pathways (MAPS). After reviewing the information, you can meet with your Academic Advisor at the Academic Support Center to make a plan for your academic career.

If you know your major, you can explore related careers or careers based on your interests.
If you have not chosen a major yet, you can explore careers based on interests or get advice on picking a major.

If you need information about a specific career see our online resources or make an appointment with a Career Counselor on Handshake!
