So you want to … choose the right major?

We learn through hands-on work.

C3 student Brenda Lozano works on repotting plants in the Fox Labs Greenhouse. Brenda is a 4th year student majoring in Horticulture.

Picking the perfect major when you transfer to NC State isn’t always easy. Maybe you rock your science classes, but aren’t sure what to do with a chemistry degree. Or maybe you know exactly what job you want, but don’t know which major will get you there. At C3, we want to help you explore your options and find your path.

Join us for a series of “So you want to…” workshops where you can learn about the programs we offer at NC State and the industries who are looking for great talent like you. Join us for one or all of these sessions!
