Choosing a Major
Studies show that people are more successful and satisfied in jobs and career fields consistent with their skills, values, interests, and personality traits. Gathering information about these qualities is called self-assessment. We have many resources that can help students select a major that matches their self-assessment.
Prepare for Graduate / Professional School
The Career Development Center has resources that can help students identify programs that match their interests, prepare for entrance exams, and create admissions essays and personal statements. During the academic year, we offer practice exams, sponsor special workshops on the graduate school admission process, and bring a variety of schools to campus via our career fairs and information tables.
