The following websites are resources you can explore when making decisions related to your major and/or career.
ElimiMajor is an exercise developed by the staff of Santa Monica College's Career Services Center. As career professionals we have learned that students may not know what they want to choose as a major, but they always know what they DON'T want as their major. You will have the opportunity to identify majors that you are NOT interested in, and circle the majors that you are interested in.
