Student Success & Academic Advising Center

Undecided/Deciding Students

Are you unsure of what career you want to pursue?

Are you having trouble narrowing down what major fits the career you are interested in?

This is all very normal and we are here to help you with the decision-making process.  We have developed Focus Areas that encompass all majors that Missouri Western has to offer.  The majors are connected to Focus Areas based on the career opportunities within those majors.  Please visit the Focus Areas website to learn more about what major is the best fit for the career you are considering.

You can do some career assessment through Career Development by going to this link: Traitify. This assessment can provide guidance on what careers and Missouri Western majors fit your interests.  If you have any questions, please contact the career Development Center at 816-271-4292
