Major/Career Exploration Events

Find Your Future!

Welcome to the Center for Major Exploration (CME). CME staff is dedicated to assisting exploratory students in making a good decision about a major. Nationally, anywhere between 60% - 80% of college students change majors one or more times, so you are not alone.

CME offers specialized advising for students who are undecided about what major is right for them. The exploratory advising program guides students through the process of identifying and realizing educational and career goals. Programming, courses and one-on-one advising activities empower students to understand ways in which their interests, abilities, values and goals will relate to their chosen major. CME advisors put an emphasis on assisting students with developing and enhancing their decision making and critical thinking skills.

CME offers individual advising sessions and a decision making workshop to facilitate the choice of a major. Students will have the opportunity to utilize interest inventories as well as online resources to explore a variety of majors and career options. Advisors help students monitor their academic progress, plan their course schedules and interpret university regulations and procedures-all with the goal of maximizing academic success. In addition, students have the opportunity to enroll in UNIV 120 "Career Exploration" which is designed to guide students through the process of exploring options for a major and the career opportunities related to them. If you are uncertain which major path is the right one for you and need assistance, make sure that you come and "CME".
