Choose the best university program for you by thinking about your career options, aptitudes, and interests.

Choosing a university program is a big decision, and one that can impact your future options. And making that decision without really knowing what you’re getting into is a huge challenge. That’s a lot of pressure! Asking yourself key questions in these three categories can help guide your decision making and clarify your path to choose a university program.

These three categories will also help you with your future career planning as you go through your bachelor’s program and beyond. If you continue to make decisions that take into consideration the career options that are available, as well as your interests and your aptitudes (skills), you can have a fulfilling education and career path.
