Career Services has many resources to help you decide on a major and explore career options.

Each of these offerings can be done in a brief amount of time (2-30 minutes) and taking more than one can help you identify core themes to explore further. As always, we encourage students to take these and schedule an appointment with Career Services to review in detail with a Career Consultant for mapping your next strategies in a career plan.
