Baltimore County, MD – Are you undecided about which academic major to choose? Would you like to connect with program coordinators to learn about career opportunities and transferability for your choice of a major? If so, plan to attend one of CCBC’s spring 2016 Majors Fairs to get the help you need to make an informed choice.

Majors Fairs offer both current and prospective CCBC students the opportunity to meet with faculty and explore the variety of majors available to them as well as their transfer and career potential. An important aspect of the Majors Fairs is a chance for participants to learn how to add value to their existing majors, build their resumes and make themselves more marketable with the completion of a certificate with their degree.
