The Career Discovery Program allows you to explore multiple academic programs before making a commitment to one major.


Career Discovery Program

Many new students decide to delay choosing a major if they have varied interests or have not identified a main focus for their studies.

To help students clarify their academic interests, D'Youville College's Career Discovery Program offers these possibilities:

  • Take courses that fulfill the core curriculum requirement so you keep pace to graduate on time.
  • Sample introductory courses in particular majors.
  • Explore multiple academic programs before making a commitment to one major.
  • Seek out job shadowing opportunities in place of internships. The professional network program in the Career Services Center can assist you.
  • Take up to four semesters (depending on credit hours) before applying to a major program of study.


  • Participate in small-group discussions to assess your interests and examine different academic areas and careers.
  • Receive information and tutoring assistance, if needed, from the Learning Center.
  • Access information about different careers from the Career Services Center.
