CHOOSING A MAJOR
Picking your major can be frustrating and sometimes confusing. Deciding on which major or a career can take some time. It is important to explore your different options and "test drive" several majors before deciding on one. Career planning encompasses what you know about yourself (values, interests, abilities and personality) and what you know about different educational and career possibilities. The COD Career Center provides one-on-one career counseling to students and offers several workshops throughout the fall and spring semesters to help students learn more about themselves.
