Majors & Careers
Here’s a good rule of thumb as you dig into majors and careers: your major isn’t necessarily a straight path to a specific career. Meaning: there are just as many Rider graduates who find careers outside their major as those whose major segues into a related career. Whatever major or career path you choose, make sure it’s something you’re interested in and passionate about – and check out the resourses below.
