There are many factors to consider when choosing a major. One factor depends on your understanding of the different careers. Below, you will find links to two websites that provide significant information regarding many occupations.
Occupational Outlook Handbook: A publication from the United States Department of Labor that provides information on a variety of career fields.
O*Net Online: Similar to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Select "Skills Search" for a quick career assessment based on your acquired skills.
The inclusion of potential careers does not guarantee employment in those occupations as advanced degrees and certifications may be required. Professional Associations/ Career Resources are provided to assist students in exploring potential careers and majors and are not an endorsement from Austin Peay State University or the Advisement Center for Undeclared Students.
