Choosing a Major or Career

There are many factors to consider when choosing a major. One factor depends on your understanding of the different careers. Below, you will find links to two websites that provide significant information regarding many occupations.

Occupational Outlook Handbook: A publication from the United States Department of Labor that provides information on a variety of career fields.

O*Net Online: Similar to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Select "Skills Search" for a quick career assessment based on your acquired skills.

Majors at APSU

The inclusion of potential careers does not guarantee employment in those occupations as advanced degrees and certifications may be required. Professional Associations/ Career Resources are provided to assist students in exploring potential careers and majors and are not an endorsement from Austin Peay State University or the Center for Teaching & Learning.
