So you’re getting ready for your first semester of college, or you’re heading back for round 2 or 3, but you still have that pesky ‘undecided’ label for a major. Obviously, you need to choose a major, most schools will start to pressure you if you haven’t declared by at least the end of your sophomore year, but how do you go about it? I typed in a google search of help choosing a major and a lot of what I found were a few interesting and somewhat useful tips, but a lot of What Should I Major In? quizzes. While this may be a place to start to narrow down a general field or department, it’s not the best for a full on definite choice.
I have a few conventional and not so conventional tips on choosing a major. They might not be step by step instructions to figure out what you want to do, but they will help you and guide you to people who can, or help yourself figure it out over time.
