9780134257518: Selecting a College Major: Exploration and Decision Making Plus MyStudentSuccessLab without Pearson eText -- Access Card Package (6th Edition)

This book greatly simplifies the complex process of choosing a major by leading students through personal, academic and occupational information searches. It offers a natural progression for decision making by using thought-provoking activities to explore themselves before exploring majors. Whether choosing or changing a major, the discovery process examines different perspectives, such as relating interests, skills and values to academic fields of study, searching a national system that identifies many academic majors, and exploring majors available at their own institution. Once specific academic alternatives are identified, a search of occupational information helps students examine the career possibilities that specifically relate to the majors they are considering.

From the Back Cover:

This revision of Selecting a College Major  is a tremendous resource in assisting students with their search for a future that fits their strengths and interests. This new and updated edition uses 14 Fields of Study as a framework for exploring academic possibilities.

A systematic process leads students through personal and academic assessment as well as occupational information searches. Through thought-provoking activities, they can explore their academic, career, and personal interests and goals. Students can investigate academic majors from many perspectives, including a search of majors in general, majors on their campus, and majors based on their academic and occupational interests. Highlights include:

  • A Natural Decision-Making Progression. Students are directly and personally involved in activities that involve exploration, reflection, and choice.
  • Extensive Major Exploration. Three distinct approaches provide students with thorough exploration of the majors decision
