PathBase's 'Major-Path Translator' Helps Students See Popular Career Options

When a student has a dual major in dancing and forestry, it can be tough to imagine career options after graduation, but PathBase's new 'Major-Path Translator' makes it easier to see one's potential in the real world. The simple, intuitive tool uses data on college majors and the subsequent fields that those grads work in to give young students an idea of where they might end up if they ultimately opt for that cultural studies major.

To be sure, the tool is still relatively limited in terms of the majors that it offers. If someone were to have made the eminently wise decision to major in English during undergrad, they'd be unfortunately out of luck — many arts majors aren't included in the tool at all. Then again, who'd be so self-centered and impractical as to major in something like that?
