This study investigated the relationship of career exploratory beliefs to certainty in a sample of undergraduate agriculture students. The findings of the study indicated freshmen and senior students were moderately certain about their career choice and held moderate career exploratory beliefs. Career certainty was significantly related to several career exploratory belief dimensions. Multiple regression analysis indicated that career certainty could be predicted from one career exploratory belief dimension, Certainty of Career Exploration Outcome (CCEO), for both freshmen and senior students. Implications of the findings are discussed and recommendations are provided for enhancing the career development experiences of undergraduate students enrolled in colleges of agriculture.
