The MSU Major and Career Exploration Project (Officially called the Disciplinary Literacy paper by the Department and Library) gives you the opportunity to explore ways to make the most of your education here at MSU and learn more about what is expected in the workplace upon graduation. It will allow you to learn more about your specific field in terms of job outlook, anticipated pay, opportunities for further development, and many other basic details of your targeted profession. It also allows you to analyze the research and rhetorical practices that occur within a specific field. (Communication skills such as reading and speaking and also, the types of research you may conduct to do your work.) This assignment may help you learn more about your intended career; or it may help you eliminate one of the possibilities that you have been considering. At the same time, it will give you the chance to learn about other disciplines as you work together with your peers.
