Have you decided on a major but want to know more about it or are wondering what kind of internship or job you can get with that major? Are you struggling and unsure where to start? We are here to help. Relax, you have time to think this through.

Do you have a few majors in mind, but not sure how to decide? Get some help making a major decision — we have the people and tools to help make this decision. 

The What Can I do with a Major In series on Blugold Insider is a great place to find lots of details about the majors at UW-Eau Claire. 

We also recommend the following websites for career exploration:

        Occupational Outlook 

         O*Net Online 

Many students come to college considering a variety of majors, and others begin to discover new areas of interest once they start taking classes. If you've discovered you have several majors in mind, we can help you learn how to narrow down your options.

A great way to compare and contrast the majors in which you are interested is to use the Explore Majors Worksheet. Resources to help you with this worksheet are the online catalog, academic department websites, informational meetings with faculty or alumni, and even student organizations for groups that are associated with majors.
