Use Wayfinder to choose an academic path and explore career opportunities

Don’t know what you want to do with the rest of your life? Don’t worry—you’re not alone. A lot of University of Texas students come to college undecided, and it’s common for students to change majors. Uncertainty is normal! Wayfinder can help you explore your options and move you toward a first career you’ll love. 

GO UNDECLARED—Not a UT student yet? Consider enrolling in the School of Undergraduate Studies to explore your options before declaring a major.

With the help of an academic advisor and a career counselor, you’ll discover new interests while complimenting coursework applicable to all degrees.
