You don't have to explore on your own. UWS Career Services offers one-on-one counseling where you can consider your options, dreams, and values as you look to decide on a major, a grad school, or a potential job.

From new first year students to alumni looking for a new career path are welcome to call, email, or stop by our office to set up an appointment.
