Counseling and personal attention are equally important in students' search for a major. Students can make an appointment and get to know a skilled academic advisor who can help explore Mount St. Joseph University's curriculum and program majors. Additional assistance is available through:
Career and Experiential Learning Center
A library of career-related and practical information assist in your career search. The Mount Guide to Majors and Careers is also available at the Center.
Career counseling by appointment
A counselor guides you through interest inventory programs, such as Self-Directed Search and DISCOVER, an internet-based career guidance system that enables you to explore and identify your skills, experiences and values.
Service Learning Opportunities
You can participate in one-day service projects with classmates for real-world experiences that can help you explore job and career options.
Once you officially declare a major, you are assigned an academic advisor in that major's department. All students are assigned an academic advisor through the Office of Admissions after finishing the admissions process.
We encourage students to work closely with their assigned advisor to clarify educational objectives, and decide on an appropriate course schedule that will lead to earning a degree. An advisor can guide you but, remember, you have the final responsibility for meeting all program and degree requirements.
