Deciding on a Major

Most employers want employees the skills/experience to get the job done. The exact college major is often, but not always, secondary in importance to having the right skills for the job.

  • Explore your options. Search for majors at the University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU) on ASSIST: Explore Majors by discipline, major, or campus. You can also link to campus departments for most majors. UC Transfer also includes a section on choosing a major and campus for the UC system.
  • Select a major that interests you. Choosing a major where most of the required courses interests you will usually point you in a direction towards success. You will be in a better position to compete in the labor market if your educational and career choices suit your interests, strengths/skills, and personal values. You may research required courses for majors in college catalogs in the LPC Career Transfer Center or online.
  • Research college majors most common to your initial career choice. While some professions require a particular college major, many careers do not. Many people work in jobs that don’t seem directly related to their college majors.
