Choosing a Major

Choosing a major in college can be a daunting task. Individuals typically begin their career search at a different point in their life. Every student has a different work history, personal challenges and/or obligations, as well as desired level of educational attainment. Given the notion that no two people are the same, career counselors usually look at various factors that influence a person's decision. Through personal exploration, we will discover your values, skills; motivation; expectations; interest; passion; and work history just to name a few.

Career Counseling

For many people, choosing a career can be a daunting task. The Career Counselor is available to better assist you in the selection and decision making process. Various career assessments may be administered on a case-by-case basis in order to help clarify a person's values, interest, skills, and abilities.
