Exploring Majors & Careers Academic Course

Career Development Ambassadors (CDA) Mentoring Program

The Gateway Center provides student-focused academic advising for Open Option majors, UCM students who are in the process of exploring their major and minor options.  The emphasis is on assisting still deciding students in carefully selecting classes that progress you toward graduation even though you are still exploring your academic direction. 

In addition to gateway academic advising for Open Option majors, we offer several major and career exploration services to all UCM Students, whether you are Open Option, reconsidering your current major, or seeking further insight into your academic program and corresponding career options. Whether through one-on-one counseling appointments or in class, special emphasis is given to an exploration of self through the use of career assessments, interactive exercises, informational interviews, and online career resources. The focus begins with facilitating the methodical discovery of your academic and professional passions, and continues with the development of a plan to accomplish your goals.
