Choosing & Using Your Major

Only a handful of jobs require specific majors, and the vast majority of careers can be reached through countless different majors. Most college majors don't offer specific preparation for a single type of work. In a survey of UVA Arts and Sciences graduates, only 27% reported a direct connection between their undergraduate major and their current career.
