Student: Micro-credentials

Take the next step in your career discovery and help yourself stand out by earning subject matter micro-credentials. MajorClarity's micro-credentials were built in partnership with leading employers and educational institutions. They are offered to all 9-12th grade students. Whether you want to become more knowledgeable in a specific industry or prepare for an upcoming job or internship, we have a micro-credential for you!

Why earn a micro-credential?
