A major is a specific subject area that students specialize in.
If you specialize in something like nursing, accounting or engineering, you're learning a specific trade. Many majors, however, prepare you to enter a range of careers once you graduate. For many students, picking a college major is not the same as choosing a job. For example, a degree in English Literature might lead you to a job in publishing, teaching, advertising, public relations or law, among other fields.
The sites listed below will help you connect majors to careers. Create a list of majors and then research local colleges for similar majors.
Once you decide what major you’d like to pursue you, you will need to contact and “declare” your degree with an Academic Advisor.
Academic Advisors are different than Counselors. Academic Advisors are available to provide information on degree plans and the classes you need to take to earn a degree as well as how to develop enrollment strategies and ways to ensure that your MCC classes will transfer to other institutions. Again all services are FREE to MCC students!
