Do Majors = Careers?

Some majors prepare you for a very specific career path, like Nursing, Engineering, or Education. For example, if you want to be a Spanish teacher you’ll need to major in Spanish Education; if you want to be an accountant you’ll want to major in Accounting. 
 
Other majors, like Communication Arts or International Studies, give you a broad background and set of skills that can be applied to many different occupations. However, while these types of majors are more versatile, it’s important to have career goals in mind and strategically build your resume with complementary Beyond the Classroom experiences.
