Research Majors & Careers

Not sure what you want to do with your life? Take some time and do some research. Students can stop by the Student Services Office to make an appointment to take interest/career inventories to help focus on careers that best fit their abilities and interests, discuss educational requirements, working conditions, job market information, and salary expectations.

There are also websites for you to research majors and career ideas to assess your knowledge and talents to determine your career path.

Research Universities

If you may want to transfer from a two-year college to a four-year college anywhere in the U.S., use College Search. It can help you research potential colleges and identify the ones with the majors and programs that meet your needs.

Many community colleges have special transfer relationships, called articulation agreements, with specific four-year colleges. These agreements show how the courses you complete at the community college apply toward graduation requirements at the four-year college. The agreements may apply to individual courses or complete degrees. They help take the guesswork out of course selection. Some colleges post articulation agreements on their websites.


Transferology is a nation-wide network designed to help students answer the question "Will my courses transfer?". Within Transferology, students can find courses that transfer between institutions, degree requirements that courses satisfy, and different majors that institutions offer.
