How did others explore majors?
A successful professional takes the time to think about and explore what interests, skills, identities and values they have have and how those elements link to opportunities.
How will you explore you interests, skills, identities and values? What will you do to learn about your opportunities? Learn from others what steps were helpful in their process.
