Career Counseling & Explorers Program
Students who are still exploring a major or career are encouraged to participate in the Explorers Program and connect with career counselors.
Career counselors help students discover their skills, interests and values and how these can be applied in major and career exploration. We help you with the following:
- Getting to know yourself and DISCOVER your skills, interests and values.
- Helping you EXPLORE how you can tie your attributes to different major and career options.
- Helping you DECIDE on your goal by coming to a resolution while considering all your options.
- Clarify your educational pathway to better PLAN with your academic counselor.
By meeting with a career counselor you'll have a better understanding of your career choices, the classes you should be taking to get there, and the salary figure expected in those jobs. We want to help you set goals and find careers that are fulfilling and enjoyable.
What is the Explorers Program?
The Explorers Program provides a guided pathway and necessary support for students who are undecided or undeclared on their major and/or career. Students begin with an online or in-person orientation, followed by a MyMajors assessment that will recommend best-fit majors. Students can then meet with a career counselor to assess the results, create an action plan and determine the level of support needed to accomplish your goals. Explorers are invited to attend a career workshop series that includes the topics of self-discovery, career exploration, career goal setting, and more.
