Start planning your post-college future beginning with your first days on campus. The Career Planning staff will assist you in every step of the process, from choosing a major to conducting a successful job search to selecting and applying to graduate school.
Some students start college knowing exactly what they want to major in. Others don't know what to major in, or have a career goal but don’t know which majors will get them there. In fact, up to 50% of students change their majors at least once before graduation. The Career Planning Center has the resources that will help you discover your skills and interests so you can choose the major and/or career path that fits you.
