Self-Exploration
Self-exploration is the process of identifying your interests, skills, personality type, achievements, and values. These five areas of self-exploration can be assessed and evaluated in a number of ways. Choosing the right major and career path requires you to personally assess these areas and determine the best fit.

To start, ask yourself a few simple questions:
Once you list these things, try to think of some jobs you might like. If you have trouble identifying some of these things, don't worry; Career Services offers consulting and assessments for each area of self-exploration

Consulting Sessions
Your academic advisor is not just there to sign off on your classes, they also help you navigate the academic waters and make solid decisions. Make an appointment with your advisors often and talk to them about majors you are considering.

Also make an appointment with a Career Consultant to talk about majors and careers.
