Choosing a Program

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Many students have difficulty choosing a program of study and/or a career. However, that indecision affects everyone differently. Students struggling to decide may express some of the following thoughts:

  • What program should I study? I have no clue!
  • I have never known what I have wanted to do. How do I figure it out?
  • What can I do with my degree after I graduate or transfer?
  • I have narrowed it down to these three careers, but how do I choose?
  • I knew what I was doing when I started here, but I changed my mind after I took a few classes. What do I do now?
  • I have a hard time with commitment. How do I make such a big decision?
  • Nothing seems interesting to me. Where do I go from here?
  • What other careers exist? I think I might be missing something.

If you have these or other concerns that are keeping you from making a career decision, we are here to help. We look forward to meeting with you soon and helping you find the right goals for you.
