Exploring Majors and Careers

Exploring majors and careers is a normal part of the student experience. Research, self-assessment, and experience help students through the career decision-making process.

You have online access to several assessments to assist with your career exploration needs. Individual appointments and the resources on this website will help you connect your results to UT majors and careers.

Data suggests more than one-third of students change their majors and less than ten percent report knowing a great deal about their intended careers.

Make a good first impression on your future employer by creating a professional resume and cover letter.
