Majors & Careers
Have you looked through Haverford’s Majors, Minors, & Concentrations and are still unsure of which ones are right for you?
If it helps remove the pressure, know that your major does not determine your career prospects. Any major will provide you with a set of skills that can translate into a variety of different industries. Therefore, when selecting a major, it’s best to pick something that you enjoy and are excited about learning.
A liberal arts education allows you to develop a variety of transferable skills and competencies that you can offer potential employers. Some of you will want positions that require the specific content skills you developed through your majors or concentrations. Many of you, however, will take an alternative path in which you apply the broad range of both specific and general skills (i.e. writing, public speaking, analysis), that you refined during your undergraduate career.
