Mapping Your Major
DePauw University has more than 40 majors, including one you can design yourself. How do you choose your major? How do different majors connect to possible careers? How do you decide? This highly interactive session will help you focus on your strengths and interests, and how these support your academic and career goals as you continue the process of exploring majors. Just as a map guides you through unknown territory, your "major map" will be the start of a visual plan to guide you along the path to choosing a major..
