Contrary to popular belief, most career fields do not require a specific major. In fact, the majority of employers who recruit on campus or on-line through Career Connections, Salisbury University’s employer database, advertise their job openings across all SU’s major fields.
There are some exceptions, namely those majors categorized as pre-professional--career fields requiring certifications or licenses, such as Nursing, Education, Clinical Laboratory Sciences/Medical Technology, Accounting, Engineering, Athletic Training, Environmental Health, and Respiratory Therapy.
Since most college majors don’t offer specific preparation for a single type of work, your choice of major is only one factor in determining your future job prospects and career path. The skills you acquire through your coursework, and the career-related experience you acquire through internships, volunteering, participation in on-campus activities, travel and study abroad, on and off-campus employment, undergraduate research, and service learning opportunities, are often more important to employers than your major.
