Choice of Major
As an undergraduate student, whether you are undecided on a major or a minor, or considering changing your academic discipline, this workshop will enable you to make informed decisions. The in-person workshop will help you to identify your level of interest and confidence in different fields of study using the College Majors Scorecard. The virtual workshop utilizes the online MyMajors assessment.
College Major Scorecard
The college major scorecard (CMS) helps students find a major that is a good fit. This 147-item assessment leads directly to the 49 majors most common at universities. Based on the kinds of work activities that each major is most likely to lead to, the CMS helps students pick a major by making a connection between their knowledge and abilities, their choice of major, and their future career options. Using an innovative, detachable scorecard design, the CMS is easy to score and easy to interpret. In addition, it provides suggestions and worksheets for further research.
The 15-minute assessment will recommend your best-fit majors that match your academic achievement, aptitude, unique interests, and preferences. You will get recommendations on top majors and careers based on your academic achievements, interests and personality
