Selecting a major is NOT the same as choosing a career
It’s true… Employers are interested in what makes you, YOU! The whole you. From skills and abilities to internships, extracurriculars, and overall passions — majoring in a certain area does not necessarily require you to choose a certain career.
There are a handful of careers in which major selection is a consideration. These include but are not limited to: accounting, computer programming, engineering, and finance.
Pursue a major that interests you.
Students usually make the best grades in the classes they enjoy the most, so why not choose a major that you’re passionate about?
Research, explore, and be open-minded.
The purpose of your major is not to prepare you for one specific job, especially at a liberal arts university like Wake Forest. Your major is to develop you as a whole person. Consider all the possibilities and passions you can pursue!
