Choosing a Career or Major
The Five Stage Process
Congratulations as you embark on this journey to select a major at Arizona Western College. Research shows that having an academic focus and college success go hand-in-hand. AWC offers more than 60 majors, so it is understandable that you may feel overwhelmed. So many choices! It is our hope this plan will assist you in making a selection. Our model is divided into five stages: Self-knowledge, Investigate, Try It Out!, Connect the Dots… and Next Steps. Everyone begins this process with different needs and goals, so all will not spend the same amount of time at each stage. Following this process will also assist you in making a career choice.
