    • Summary

      How do students choose a college major? How do college majors drive the recruiting process?

      While careers aren’t determined by majors, majors are frequently used as a proxy for career intentions by students, parents, faculty, and sometimes employers and career professionals. When considering talent pipelines and ever-earlier recruiting cycles, it is natural to look more deeply into how students makes decisions about their majors. This webinar will use doctoral-study data to unpack the sources of information most influential in college major selection and explore best practices of collaboration between campus units for supporting the process. It will conclude with a mock decision experience and the demonstration of a start to development of individual campus action plans to guide students towards making decisions about their majors.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Identify the sources of information most influential in students’ decision-making process related to college major;
      • Articulate best practices for collaboration with other campus units impacting the decision-making process; and
      • Synthesize this information into an actionable plan to positively impact major decision-making for students on your campuses.
