Bringing Education to You


Career options by degree

Posted on Jun, 04 2014

Frequently I take phone calls from individuals interested in earning an online degree.  This is one of the best parts of my job.  I love hearing from these individuals because not only do I get to hear what their goals and aspirations are but I also get to talk with them about how an online degree at NDSU can help them attain those goals.  Often times individuals have an idea of what they want to do in life, careerwise, but are unclear as to what degree would best help them get there.  This is where the NDSU Career Center can be of use to potential students.  Former NDSU students report back on jobs they get based on their degree title.  The NDSU Career Center keeps a list of these job titles which is made available for anyone to view.  I would suggest to any potential student who is unsure of which degree they should pursue or are deciding between multiple degree programs that they review the list.  This will help them see what they can do with the degree once they have graduated.

If you are a current student interested in future career opportunities your major offers, talk to your advisor. Your advisor can assist you in choosing electives and other classes that will get you closer to attaining your future goals.
