About the CEC

The Career Exploration Center (CEC) helps undergraduate students with the process of exploring majors and careers. If you are unsure about what to major in or what type of career would be best for you, the CEC is the place for you.

Our Mission

The CEC strives to engage and support undergraduate students across all of UW-Madison’s schools and colleges through counseling, advocacy, and programming. We also connect students to resources that help empower them to make decisions about their educational, career, and life paths.

Our Purpose

The CEC 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.
