Choosing a major is difficult for many students. However, there are a number of resources on campus to assist students in the decision-making process.
First, your student should make an appointment with an academic advisor. The academic advisors have expertise in all of the majors offered at CUI, are knowledgeable about the courses that are required in each major, and are well equipped to discuss the best paths for students to follow when making academic decisions.
Secondly, your student should make an appointment with a career advisor at the Office for Career & Vocation. A career counselor will discuss their career options with them and will also help them employ various resources that can aid in making informed career choices.
Professors are another excellent resource. They can offer information about career options and can explain the coursework that is required for specific majors.
Academic clubs afford students opportunities to meet others who share similar scholastic interests and to interact with faculty in informal settings. For information about academic clubs, your son should contact the Student Life Center.
The University Library maintains an excellent selection of academic journals that they can read to learn more about various careers.
