Exploring Majors and Careers


Self-assessment is the first step in the career planning process. UCS offers two on-line tools to help you identify your interests and skills, personality and values and how they can be matched with your educational and career goals. While assessment tools cannot tell you what career or major discipline you should choose, they are designed to help you learn more about yourself so you can make an informed decision.
