Deciding on a Major and Career Path
Our goal is to help you make a thoughtful decision leading to the most natural path.
We recommend three meetings to thoroughly explore.
Careers
  1. Meeting 1 logo
    EXPLORE
    your interests, background, majors and career resources, and PathwayU.
  2. Meeting 2 logo
    REVIEW & RESEARCH
    PathwayU assessment results and worksheets, major options, unique career matches.
  3. Meeting 3 logo
    DIVE DEEPER INTO
    PathwayU career matches and job board and additional career exploration tools.

While some students may feel confident in their major selection and intended career path after three meetings, some students need more time to make these important decisions, so we encourage you to keep exploring with your Career Advisor. There is great benefit in continuing to engage with Career & Professional Development in your exploration process, including preparing for informational interviews, crafting a resume, and discussing strategies to gain internships in your field of interest.
