Careers in Your Major  


Find a Career in Your Major

Most students are very surprised at the flexibility that comes with ANY major.  A degree in engineering can lead to a career in finance, while a history degree can lead to a job in the healthcare field. 

The links below list common generic majors. Choose the one closest to your major for a list of typical job titles, job descriptions, potential employers, and the training and level of degree you'll need to pursue specific jobs.
