What is your major? What do you want to do with your major? What do you like? What are you good at? These are questions you have likely been asked throughout high school and since you have arrived at Appalachian State. For many, these questions can be stressful. First of all, it is OK not to know but we want to help you take steps towards making decisions about your major and future career path(s). Our Career Exploration staff will guide you through a creative process of self-discovery about your interests, skills, values and personality.
