Regardless of your major, your college degree will demonstrate that you have the skills employers are seeking. You'll learn to think critically, communicate effectively and solve problems strategically.
First-year college students may still be deciding as they explore possibilities. Here are some tips as you weigh your options.
- When deciding on a major, talk to other students who are majoring in subjects that interest you
- Take courses in areas you may be interested in pursuing
- Talk to faculty about possible career paths.
- Explore careers through the Career Center
