Choosing a Major/Career

Discover your passion


Sometimes choosing a major can be one of the most difficult tasks a college student faces. Some people know instinctively what they want to do or be, but most need a little help. That's why at LMU we use the FOCUS2 career and education planning system to aid students in making wise choices.

Use FOCUS 2  to select your college major and explore your career options based on your interests, personality, skills and values. Focus™2 is a self-guided, interactive assessment program. It combines five self-assessments about career and major exploration, action planning and decision making into one comprehensive package and your results are matched to career options and majors/programs at LMU.

FOCUS 2 guides students through a reliable career and education decision making model to help them choose their major at LMU and make informed decisions about their career. FOCUS 2 combines

  • 5 self-assessments
  • Career and major exploration
  • Action planning
  • Decision making
