Choosing a major and a respective career path can be a challenge. Ensure that you are looking at all of your opportunities and possibilities. Majors do not dictate specific jobs, they help you pursue a career path which you define! After using some of our online resources, set up an appointment with a Career Counselor today to talk about your career path.
