What Can I Do With A Major In?

Connecting a major to a career is a challenge for many students. Below you will find a list of majors linking to information to help you start the process.

Remember, your major does not always determine your career. College graduates use their education in a wide variety of fields. In addition to the options listed, you should explore and learn about the wide range of career opportunities available to you.

Your Career Services Coordinator is also a great resource to use as you continue your research.   Be sure to include them in your career exploration.  Or read this article by James C. Gonyea, "Discover the Work You Were Born to Do."

You can also explore majors at Fort Lewis College by taking some of the recommended introductory courses offered here.
