    Career Related Credit Classes

    Undeclared/Exploratory Advisers
    If you have not decided on a major, you are not alone. Over half of all incoming students have not decided on a major. Your major will be listed as “undeclared/exploratory” and you will be assigned to the Career Planning and Counseling Center Career Counselors as your advisers. We will help you explore your options here at Mt. Hood Community College and beyond, including employability and average wages and job outlook for the career paths you are interested in. If you already know what your major is, find your adviser on the program advisers list and contact them directly for academic advising.
