An interdisciplinary arts and sciences education is an excellent foundation for many careers. As you take classes across disciplines, you will hone critical thinking, communication, and analytical skills that employers value. You will also acquire domain-specific knowledge in multiple fields of study.
Weinberg College and Northwestern offer many resources to help you explore career options and prepare to enter careers you find appealing.
Consult with Weinberg College Advisers and department advisers for career-related advice at all points in the process. Northwestern Career Advancement offers career advising through its Career Counseling Team. It helps students make successful career decisions that fit their unique personality and professional goals. Some of these decisions might include choosing an academic major, assessing interests, values, strengths and skills, and exploring/discovering different career paths.
