“What Can I Do with a Major in . . . “
By Megan McConnell, Academic Counselor, UAA Advising
Students are asking it, advisers are trying to answer it, we just want to remind everyone of a great website that helps us all get to the bottom of the age-old, “What can I do with a major in . . .” question.
The University of Washington’s Center for Career Services maintains a convenient website that helps you connect majors with careers. For each major of interest, a student can choose either a PDF or HTML version to find an outline of common career areas, typical employers, and strategies designed to maximize career opportunities. CCS reminds advisers and students to keep in mind that the information sheets and websites are representative of typical career paths associated with each major and not a comprehensive list.
You can navigate to the website via the Transfer Thursday webpage; it is the very last link at the bottom of the page under “Recommended websites for prospective transfer students.”
