Welcome to the Fall 2020 Exploring Majors Fair!

Since we can’t meet in-person this semester, NCC Program Coordinators have pre-recorded these videos to explain to you what each major is all about. Under Academic Departments, click the meta-major that interests you in order to jump directly to that grouping. For example, click “Business” to jump to all the majors in the Business meta-major group. Or, you can scroll through all of the majors and play each video to learn about each. For follow up questions and to request more information, please link to the Faculty Academic Advisor Directory here.  Choose the correct faculty advisor for the major which interests you and reach out to him/her at the contact info provided in the Directory.

Some of the questions that the following videos will answer are: What career paths can go with this major?  What types of transfer options are there with this major?  Is there an introductory course that students can take to determine if this major is a good match?  Please watch as many as you like!
