  • Consider enrolling in EDUC 111 Career Exploration.
  • Review the Catalog to explore different majors and minors offered at UNC.
  • Consider taking the Focus 2 Assessment and discussing the results with a Career Coach at University Career Services.
  • Schedule a meeting with your Academic Advisor to discuss your interests and skills and how those interests and skills align with majors offered at UNC.
  • What Can I Do With This Major and the  Occupational Outlook Handbook are both great resources to help you decide on the major and career that is right for you!
  • If you are interested in health professions, consider connecting with Health Professions Advising to discuss your interests. Biol 117 Considering Health Professions is a great course for those interested in health professions.
