Choosing a Degree or Certificate

(Choosing a Major)

You may be starting college with only a vague idea of what to choose as a major (i.e., degree or certificate) and what to do as a career. If you do select a major early on, you may find that your choice of major will change as you take courses. 没关系! 

然而, if you have a specific area of study that you know you enjoy, declaring a major gives you a goal, keeps you focused and motivates you to study.

主要对. 职业生涯

Your choice of major should reflect a field of study in which you have a genuine and enduring interest. Use the education you get to develop a career that gives you satisfaction.

Many careers in occupational fields don't require specific majors, so you don't have to choose a career that matches your major.

When deciding on a career or major:

  • Investigate what 技能 you will learn in specific fields of study and how they will apply to the career choices you might make later.
  • Find something you enjoy doing, and don’t put excessive emphasis on salary and prestige.
  • Consider your own talents and interests, rather than letting career fads or courses rumored to be easy dictate your choice.
  • Follow your passion; learn what you love to do and go for it.

Choosing a Program of Study

Your program of study should reflect an area in which you have a genuine and enduring interest. Developing 技能 and knowledge in your program of study is the foundation for your career path. 

If you have a specific area of study that you know you enjoy, declaring a program of study connects you with a dedicated PCC academic advisor, gives you a goal, keeps you focused and motivates you to study.
