What you can do with your major? Here are 5 easy steps to answer that.
  • Step 1.  Complete a quick inventory that gives you a profile of your skills, values, personality, and suggests possible majors based on people like you who have similar profiles. 
  • Step 2.  Visit this link: What Can I Do With This Major?  Lots or ideas to brainstorm
