What Can I Do With A Major In ?

Examining careers that relate to majors can be a useful step in your decision making. 

Keep the following in mind:
-  You don't work in a major, you work in a career!
-  Some careers may require certain majors, but many careers do not.
-  Choosing a major does not mean you have chosen a career or that you are prepared to enter a career, and you don't have to be defined by your choice of major!

Majors starting with A-E  (32 majors)

 

Majors starting with F-M (27 majors)

 

Majors starting with N- V (22 majors)
