Talk to an academic advisor or career counselor

Making decisions about your major and future career can be overwhelming. It can be helpful to talk through your options.

The James W. Vick Center for Strategic Advising & Career Counseling assists UT students from all majors and colleges.

UT Students: Have a quick major or career question? Visit Jester A115 during drop-in hours, Monday through Friday from 1-3 p.m.

Prospective students: Schedule an appointment to meet with an academic advisor by phone at 512-232-8400.


Your major does not always determine your career path. Many graduates pursue careers outside their field, depending on their interests and experiences.


It’s not just your major that matters! Make yourself marketable by gaining a variety of experiences in college. Read a few inspiring stories by professionals whose experiences led to great careers.
