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.
CEC evening advising!
The CEC staff is excited to share that career advising appointments are now available in the evening, in College Library.
Starting January 24, CEC advisors will have appointments available from 5:00-7:00 pm in 3251 College Library. Appointments must be scheduled in advance, and can be scheduled online. CEC advisors look forward to seeing you!
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.
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.
