Explore Majors and Careers
Your major doesn’t limit you to one career. Rather, it is a launching pad to more career paths than you realize. The skills you learn at CBU can be applied to almost any industry, so take time to explore the full scope of what you can do with your major.
If you still haven’t chosen a major, try attending lectures in different academic departments to get a feel for various subject matters. View your general education classes as a way to get to know potential careers. Talk to people who are doing interesting things and find out how they got there. Attend career fairs. Search for jobs that combine your interests. Stay curious. Ask questions.
