MyPath@Bryant helps students find their way

At Bryant, students who are not certain which field of study best aligns with their interests, work values, and skills are encouraged to matriculate as Undecided. It’s a smart way to investigate program options and make the best choices.

"The program ensures that students who are undecided have the support and information they need ..."

The MyPath@Bryant program allows students to explore intellectual interests while staying on track for graduation. Personal career counseling, individualized academic advising, and career assessments help students discover interests, work values, and cultural preferences as they narrow their options and select a major, a minor, and ultimately, a career path. (At Bryant, students have until the end of sophomore year to declare a major.)

“MyPath@Bryant is a unique partnership between the Academic Affairs and Student Affairs divisions that assists students in making decisions about a major and career,” says Jennifer Edwards, special assistant to the vice president for student affairs. “The program ensures that students who are undecided have the support and information they need to take their time and choose a path that truly represents their passions and unique talents.”

Students can choose from a comprehensive menu of specialized programs, such as:

  • a mentorship program with upperclassmen;
  • MyPath Showcase, where they can learn about different majors and concentrations by speaking with faculty and peers;
  • A Degree Exploration Fair;
  • Career Planning 101, a five-session, non-credit course held each fall and spring.
