Please note: Your major may not be represented in this list which was created by an outside vendor and does not include all majors offered by Alma College. Try looking at majors that are closely related to the one you are targeting.

Career Areas: The Career Areas listed are typical for the major but not a comprehensive list. For more career ideas, explore other, related majors. And remember, people find and create unique career paths that have nothing to do with their major.
