When you graduate from Macalester, you might become a Nobel Peace Prize laureate or write a bestselling novel or be chosen one of Popular Science’s “Brilliant 10 Young Scientists.” You wouldn’t be the first graduate to do so.

At Macalester, a liberal arts college, we have 39 majors to choose from and time for you to explore before you commit to a major. That major may lead you directly to your life’s work, or it may be an internship, study abroad, or a community connection that opens that window.

Our Career Exploration staff begin working with students their first year at Macalester, from finding internships to learning how to network to getting that first job interview.
