Recommendations by Major

Wondering what USC Connect means for you?

  • What beyond-the-classroom experiences fit especially well with your major?
  • Is there a semester that works best for Study Abroad?
  • What kinds of research projects are typically done in your field?
  • How does the program help make learning meaningful by integrating experiences outside the classroom into your coursework?
  • What graduate programs or career opportunities are related to your degree?

These are examples and options, not requirements. Recommendations are intended to help students make the most of their education by providing examples of experiences that can enrich educational experience and illustrate how within and beyond the classroom experiences relate to one another.

Student options are not limited to program recommendations. While examples should help you get started in considering your choices, you have other resources.

  • Search the USC Connect Database for Experiences
  • Talk to an advisor, ACE Coach in the Student Success Center, faculty or other USC staff member
