WWU Majors and Programs by Holland Code

The Holland Code (RIASEC) assessment determines your strongest interests out of the following six categories: Realistic (R), Investigative (I), Artistic (A), Social (S), Enterprising (E), and Conventional (C). This exercise will guide you through an Interest Profiler on O*Net that is meant to help you discover your strongest interests and how they may apply to potential Major and Career options you may have not considered yet.

Follow these steps to start the Major and Career exploration process:

Step 1) On O*Net, complete the My Next Move Interest Profiler and take note of your top two letters from your results. To request a career assessment in an alternate format, please contact careers@wwu.edu.

Step 2) Once you have finished, explore O*Net for occupations related to your interest profiler results.

Step 3) Using your strongest two letters, (example: AC), use this website to find a list of potential majors that correspond with your two-letter code. First, find the list that corresponds with your strongest letter, and then explore the list of majors in the drop down list with your second strongest letter. Depending on the strength of your letters, you may want to check out the recommended majors for both pairings (example: AC and CA).
