Exploration and Discovery

Pitt’s Exploration & Discovery Career Community is designed to help students explore, identify, and research possible major and career options. Making decisions about your future career path requires you to understand your career interests, skills, and values, and explore a variety of options. In your information-gathering process, we encourage you to browse departmental websites for majors you’re considering, meet with advisors from academic departments, talk with professors, and meet with a Career Consultant.
