The JMU Career & Academic Planning office offers a tool called FOCUS where you can take self-assessment quizzes (and who doesn't love a quiz about themselves?) to see what kind of majors/careers come up. Then you can talk with a real live person, one of the CAP career counselors, about what you find. We want you to LOVE your major… because you two will be spending a lot of time together.
