Choosing a Major

Deciding what major is right for you is not always the easiest thing to do. There are several factors you need to think about when making the decision. It is important that in the end, after all the hard years of studying, you are doing what you love and enjoy.

A helpful resource for deciding what to major in is the Center for Career Planning. They offer several assessments that will give you an idea of what might be right for you. My experience with deciding the right major for me has been rough, but thankfully after all the confusion of what I really want to do, I have finally declared my major and minor with the advice of professors and the Center for Career Planning.

If you are struggling with your decision, I also recommend you do research! It is important to have a good amount of knowledge about the major you are leaning toward. You should research what types of jobs you could have with a degree in that specific major. You should research salaries if that is a big factor in your decision-making as well.

It is OK to switch your major in college. Generally, the first few semesters are spent taking general classes to fulfill the area of inquiry. Throughout that time, some students discover what they are called to study. In the end, the most important thing is doing something that you love and truly see yourself doing.
