Exploring

Career Options

Students who begin their college career “exploring” end up in a variety of different majors. Students often think that choosing a major is the same thing as choosing a career. Although these two choices are related, choosing one doesn’t automatically mean you’ve chosen the other. Students graduating from any one major could be employed in many different jobs; likewise, people who are employed in any one job could have graduated with many different majors. Choosing a major doesn’t limit you to just one career and choosing a career doesn’t limit you to just one major.

Viterbo places an emphasis on the development of general, transferable skills (e.g., writing, speaking, critical thinking, computer literacy, problem solving, team building) that employers want and that graduates will need in order to adjust to rapidly changing careers.
