The Career Exploration Center is the leading campus resource for UW-Madison undergraduates who need help exploring majors and careers. We help students focus on their interests, values, strengths, and personality to give them the tools they need to make decisions about their careers and their futures.
CEC Hours & Events
The CEC space is open for students to use as study and work space, anytime there is not an event taking place. The CEC is located at 114 Ingraham Hall – stop by to enjoy a bright, vibrant study space.
Check out the CEC Events page to make sure the space is available when you plan to be in Ingraham.
The Majors Fair is Coming!
October 24, 2017, the Majors Fair will return taking place in Varsity Hall, Union South. Representatives from almost every undergraduate major and certificate program on campus will come together to give students a chance to “browse” all the options available to them.
Don’t miss this event, held only once a year. Learn more here!
Is the CEC the right place for me?
The Career Exploration Center is a great place for students who are exploring majors and careers, but sometimes another office is a better place to visit for your specific question. Read more here to determine your next best step.
Need Academic Advising?
The CEC is part of Cross-College Advising Service – an academic advising office on campus for students who are exploring their major options. Learn more about how CCAS could help you.
The CEC’s fall workshop series is now published – the CEC advisors are exited to bring you some new workshops this semester, as well as many opportunities to attend our Choosing a Major Workshop. Learn more here!
There are a variety of ways beyond individual appointments that students can interact with the CEC to help further their major and career exploration.
At CCAS & the CEC, we respect, value, and celebrate the diversity of all UW-Madison students. We strive to make every student feel welcome, safe, and included. By committing ourselves to supporting and advocating for students of all identities, we hope to help foster a healthy campus environment where students can explore academic interests, make decisions about majors and careers, and reach their full potential.
