Majors, Internships & Careers: Why? How? When?

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to major in something completely different? Or can you not imagine life in any other field of study?

Why are you studying [insert major here] anyway? What do you hope to actually do in the real world? Do you just want to go to a faraway land and help save the world?

Exploring Majors, Internships & Careers kicks off tonight with Dinner and a Major. Some of the events we helped line up for you over the next two weeks include: roundtable sessions with representatives from major service organizations; faculty and alumni panel sessions about your major in the real world; a panel of undergraduates who made tough choices, but finally chose majors they’re crazy about, and decision-making workshops that can help take the stress out of life-changing decisions.

All of it will culminate with this fall’s Career Expo on Thursday, October 17.

Rilke said: “Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

You don’t have to find the answer right away, but exploring your options and the opportunities that potentially await is half the experience.

Cecilia V. Lalama is the Assistant Director for Mentoring and Outreach for the ERC.
