Majors and Minors Fair allows students to see potential academic pathways and career outcomes
For students who are deciding on a major and those who are interested in adding a new minor – or even a second major – the Majors and Minors Fair brings academic offerings from all around the University to a central location.
At the fair, which will be held Oct. 8 from 1 to 3 p.m. on the lower level of Heth Hall, students can explore majors, minors, academic programs, student engagement opportunities and student resources, as well as gain information on available scholarships and academic organizations at Radford University.
New this year, though, is the partnership with the Center for Career and Talent Development. This partnership allows students to discover their ideal career path by taking the FOCUS 2 Career Assessment in the career exploration lounge as part of the Majors and Minors Fair.
The FOCUS 2 Career Assessment utilizes five assessments to provide recommendations to students, which are the Work Interests-Holland Code, personality, leisure interests, values and skills.
“By taking the assessment, career coaches can help students make informed decisions about their potential career paths,” said Rachel Hall, senior assistant director of advising. “We’re excited to be able to offer this service in conjunction with the Center for Career and Talent Development.”
More than 70 academic programs will be at the fair, with each program having representatives on-hand to answer questions any student might have.
“In addition, faculty advisors, student representatives and staff volunteer their time to help students learn more about academic requirements, careers, campus resources and graduate programs,” Hall said. “Most importantly, students will be able to hear from other students about academic areas that may be of interest to them.”
At the fair, students are able to see all of the academic choices available to them and choose the path that will allow them to pursue their career of their dreams.
