Choosing a major is one of the most important decisions of your college experience. It can also be one of the most difficult and stressful decisions you will ever make. But did you know it doesn’t have to be? UWGB offers so many resources to help you make the right decision for you with as little pressure as possible. You can review the list of majors offered at UWGB and speak with a Career Services advisor. But one of the most interesting options is the Career Planning course that is offered every semester.
Human Development 225 is a rewarding class that offers students the opportunity to explore major and career options through self-evaluation. The course as described by the syllabus reads:
This course is designed to help you develop a broad, interdisciplinary perspective on career development, as reflected by the definition presented in the text book: “the total constellation of economic, sociological, psychological, educational, physical, and chance factors that combine to shape one’s career.” The class sessions and assignments will provide the knowledge and resources necessary for conducting self-assessment, researching occupational and educational options, and establishing goals for career/life planning.
In the class you will also learn how to understand and apply career development theories, assess your own values, personality, and skill set, explore your academic options, and learn how to make informed career decisions. The course is worth one credit, has two sections to choose from, and is open to everyone.
