 There are up to 20 thousand distinctly different occupations that the US Federal Government classifies with specific job titles and different job descriptions. These can be found in the Dictionary of Occupations Titles, or the DOT. This can be overwhelming! 


One way to simplify your career focus is to look at the following Career Clusters.  Read the descriptions of each cluster at www.careerclusters.org and try to identify what cluster interests you the most. All of Cumberland's degree and certificate programs can be found in the front of the college catalog, and on our web page. Here are the career clusters and the degree programs that match them.
