Making the Connection Between Major and Career

Liberal arts majors in the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters can take you in many different directions. Use this career wheel, created by the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, to see where your major can take you!

Degree Works

*If you were admitted prior to Fall 2013, please see an advisor to review your requirements.

Degree Works is a degree audit tool, which allows students to track their progress towards degree at any time. Understanding how to use Degree Works is an important part of the transition to the University. START advisors will assist students in learning to use the tool, and by the time students move to CASL Advising, we expect they will be using Degree Works on a regular basis to check their requirements. Degree Works uses a "best fit" algorithm to populate requirements. If you ever have questions about how Degree Works is using a course, please ask an advisor. Online tutorials are available if you need to brush up on your Degree Works knowledge.

What If

Degree Works can also help a student who is considering making a change to their major, concentration, or minor. The What If function will show how a student's courses fulfill requirements in any of the majors or minors available at UM-Dearborn. The online tutorials include one on running a What If audit. CASL advisors also use this tool in appointments when helping students explore their degree options. If you are considering switching majors, adding a second major, or adding a minor, please make an appointment with us. There are so many possibilities, and we can help you to identify which majors and minors are the best fit for you.
