Career & Major Exploration

Undeclared major? You are not alone. Most students are uncertain of the area of study they would like to pursue. Students may also have a variety of interests and have trouble narrowing their choices. Most students change their major at least once, and some change several times.

Understanding yourself, your skills, values, abilities, and interests helps you choose your major. By discussing your aspirations and utilizing OCED resources, you can better clarify your goals and select a path that is meaningful and fulfilling. Choosing a major is a process, and the OCED is the place to begin your exploration.

You can view a complete list of Brevard College Majors & Minors on the Registrar page.
