What Can I Do with a Major In...
Wondering what you can do with your major?
Not sure how college, careers and skills relate?
Now, there’s a website to help you connect the dots, linking majors and careers. Created by staff from the University of Tennessee, this helpful site lists dozens of majors and offers common career areas that follow, along with typical employers, and strategies designed to maximize career opportunities.
In addition, sample Career Paths for certain UW majors have been created and included below. Check back often to review Career Paths for additional majors, which are being developed throughout the year.
Keep in mind that the majors and areas of employment, employers & strategies represent typical career paths associated with each major and not a comprehensive list. Consider also exploring information and websites from other majors to help you learn about a wider range of career opportunities. If interested in the connection between studying languages and careers, see the section for ‘foreign languages’.
