2016 Discovery Showcase

October 19, 11am-1pm
Tate Student Center, Third Floor Concourse and Atrium

 

All students are invited to attend the free Discovery Showcase for Majors, Minors, Certificate Programs and Accelerated Master's Programs, formerly known as the Majors Fair. The Discovery Showcase seeks to guide students on their major and career paths at UGA. The event is designed to assist not only undecided first-year students but to help all students enhance their marketability after graduation. We want to talk to students about how they can enhance their academic experience and become a more employable graduate—whether that's by adding or changing a major, or by pursuing a minor, certificate or an accelerated master's during their undergraduate career. 

It can be easy to miss opportunities when you are solely focused on your school or college. Even if you don't want to change your major or add a major, you should still look into other options, like minors or certificates that are available to students across schools and colleges. 

The event, sponsored by the Office of Instruction, the Exploratory Center, the Career Center and Office of Student Affairs, will offer students the opportunity to meet with career counselors, advisors and ambassadors from many of the schools and colleges. Students will also get to speak with representatives from the Career Center on career opportunities that align with majors. Students who are searching for a major may be introduced to an Exploratory Center advisor for an initial conversation and information about finding the right major.

Every half hour during the showcase, students who complete a card will be entered in a drawing to receive the following items:

  • Chick-fil-A Gift Card
  • Jimmy John's Gift Card
  • Amazon Gift Card
  • RAVPower Portable Device Charger
