"What can I do with this major?" is one of the most population questions students ask when exploring majors. Most are suprised when they learn that most majors lead to a LARGE VARIETY of career options. We've had psychology majors go into the business field, English majors go into the health field, and biology majors go into law. The reality have the freedom to choose a major you WANT to study and keep the door wide open for a diverse range of career options! 

The LinkedIn Alumni Tool is a great way to see what kinds of careers Southern graduates have pursued with all types of majors. It allows you to search for Southern alumni by major to see what they're doing for jobs...and it also allows you to search by career to see what they majored in.
