CEC Events

The Career Exploration Center is excited to offer many virtual and in-person events this semester. Whether you want to dive deep to learn more about a specific career path, want to think about which major is the best fit for you, or learn more about how majors and careers connect, we would love to help!

There are no upcoming events at this time.

In-Person Workshop: How to Choose a Major

With over 180 majors and certificates at UW-Madison, how do you choose? The Career Exploration Center is dedicated to helping you navigate your major and certificate decisions. In this in-person workshop, we will use guided activities and conversation to answer many of the popular questions around majors and certificates, such as:

  • What majors and certificates does UW offer and how do I learn more about what they entail? 
  • How do I know if a major or certificate is a good fit for me?
  • How do I explore majors that are interesting to me while still graduating on time?
  • How do I choose classes if I am not sure of my major?
  • How do I figure out what kinds of careers I might do with the majors I am considering?
  • I think I want to go to graduate school (medical, law, etc.); how do I know which major is best?
  • I have some career ideas, but how do I pick a major to achieve them?

In addition to answering these questions, we will leave space for you to ask your own!  We look forward to meeting you!
