Sometimes it's related, but often it isn't. It's a common misconception among students that your major is always going to be the same as the job title or field you pursue after graduation. While Guilford College has some outstanding pre-professional programs such as those in education, business, accounting, sports and pre-health science that are created with professional training in mind, there are many other majors that prepare you for skills that intersect with many careers. Guilford gets you ready for not only your dream career but for a life of meaningful work spanning multiple careers.
