Assess Your Strengths

Uncertain about your major? You're not alone! Many students come to The University of Texas at Austin with an undeclared major and more than 65% of students change their major at least once.

While there’s no one right way to choose a major, it’s helpful to start your decision-making process by reflecting on your VIPS: values, interests, personality, and skills.

Watch the video and then log into your dashboard to complete Wayfinder’s self-assessment activities. These activities won’t give you career suggestions, but will help you assess your strengths. Bring your activities with you to your next appointment at the Vick Center or at Texas Career Engagement. Your academic advisor and career counselor can really help!
