Selecting a major and deciding what you want to do after graduation might seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. The Career Help or Major Planning program (CHOMP) was designed to help you through this process with ease. CHOMP is a do-it-yourself process and a great way to start exploring your options. If you’re ready to find a major or consider different career paths, follow the link below to get started.
