Discover Yourself!

The path to choosing a major begins with discovering yourself.  Before you can decide on what major to choose, you first have to discover what your skills, values, interests, and goals are.

  1. Take the Do What You Are personality assessment (link opens in a new window) to learn what your personality type is and match it with potential majors and careers.  Thanks to Career Services it is offered for free to all Purdue Calumet students.  Register by using your student identification number and creating a password.
  2. Visit the Counseling Center in Gyte 005!  They offer a number of personality and interest inventory tests that can help you in choosing a suitable major or career.  They also offer individual one-on-one sessions to better serve you.  Call 219-989-2366 and ask to set up a one-on-one “career counseling session” today.
