Major Map Assignment Description

For this assignment, you will need to have three different careers in mind and about five colleges in mind from your previous "College Priorities" activity. Then for each career, you will find out which major you will need to pursue in college to become employable in the career. After that, you will need to figure out which of your five (at least three) colleges actually offer the major you seek. Finally, for one of the three colleges you find within that career path, you will need to find the degree audit or major map for the degree. 

Use the supporting websites to help you with your research.

AZCIS- A website that allows you explore careers and which college majors are needed for those careers. This website will also lead you to colleges from all around the country that offer your desired major. You will need a username and password from your teacher. 

www.azcis.intocareers.org

College Board- This will provide some basic information about various colleges. 

www.collegeboard.com

Individual College Websites- You will need to go the individual college websites for specific information on major course requirements. 

NOTE: The major maps can be hard to find depending on the college website you go to. Start by looking under the Course Catalog and searching for Degree Programs. That is where you will have the most luck. 

 

 

For each of the three careers you choose, you will need the following information. 

Career___________________________________

A. Name of major to achieve a Bachelor’s degree (4 year degree) to prepare you for the career.

  B. Name of three colleges that offer a Bachelor’s degree in _________________________________

        College #1 ______________________________

        College #2 ______________________________

        College #3 _______________________________

 C. Print and attach the majors course map (the classes you must take to complete the degree).
