Career Path

Find Your Path


What can you do with your major? The answer is, “Just about anything!” Most often, there is no arrow pointing in a straight line. Your experiences, both inside and outside of the classroom shape your direction in life. To help you begin thinking about the possibilities of your career path, a list of sample careers has been provided that may be affiliated with study in certain majors. This list is in no way exhaustive of the many options available to you, but it will give you a start. By clicking on the industry, you will be taken to O*Net, which is a comprehensive web tool that provides detailed information on various career areas, skills required, average salaries, education and training and labor market demands.
