Within each area you will find a variety of options and programs to consider. Once you've narrowed your focus to the subjects that interest you most, you will be able to learn what courses are necessary to earn a degree, diploma, or certificate.

Need help finding a major?
The first step is to understand yourself by identifying your interests, personality, skills, and values through career assessments. By completing an assessment in Career Coach, you can start to link your interests to possible careers that may be a good fit for you. The assessment is also helpful if you are a current Penn Highlands student and want to explore changing majors or other career fields. Our career counselors can help you gather information about career choices and devise a plan to prepare for your career.
