Major Card Sort

Introduction: 

This Major Card Sort activity is designed to assist you in narrowing down your areas of interest and to identify various majors offered at Cal Poly Pomona. 

Directions: 

  1. Take your time to read each card and honestly determine your level of interest for each area.
    • (Optional step) If you would like to learn more about a particular area of interest click on the “view more information” link.
  2. Rank your interest for each card by using the pull-down button (high interest, some interest, low interest).
  3. Once you select your interest level for each card, click on the “submit” button to move on and view the next card.
  4. When you are finished with this exercise, print out the results and review your results with your Academic Advisor (for undeclared students), or a Career Counselor.
  5. To schedule an appointment with a Career Counselor, call 909.869.2344, or visit them in building 97, room 100. To schedule an appointment with your Academic Advisor (if you are undeclared), call the Student Development & Undeclared Services main office at 909.869.3360.
    • (Optional step) You may conduct research on your own at the Career Center to determine your top major choices through activities such as the job information resources, the library resources, the assessment tools, and more.
