To Access the Homework Referenced on the Podcast:

·         http://Olivet.edu  à  Academics  à  Find My Interest

o   Explore the 120 areas of study and likely identify 7-10 majors you might be personally interested in pursuing

·         http://Olivet.edu/registrar

à   Degree Requirements

o   Pull up the Degree Requirements page for the 7-10 majors you are considering

o   Consider the courses listed on the Degree Requirements page for each of the 7-10 majors (if there are several courses you would not enjoy in a major, you might not enjoy that career)

o   Consider the number of credits this major will require + the general education credits, compared to the university total credits to graduate. This formula allows you to consider how long you can remain undecided before declaring this specific major.

§  For example: Major 52 credits + Gen Ed 50 credits = 102 credits and total credits to graduate is 128 (This means you have some time to consider this major OR possibly double major OR get a minor)

o   Examining the Degree Requirements pages will likely reduce your list from 7-10 to 3-5 potential majors
