Choosing a major can be difficult. Over 65% of college students begin college undeclared and over 70% change their major at least once. When deciding on a major, you want to consider several factors:
- What are your interests, values, skills, strengths and weaknesses?
- What subjects have you enjoyed learning in the past?
- What are you naturally curious about?
- What careers are you interested in and what majors are right for those careers?
- How do different majors connect to different career paths?
- Did you know most career paths don't require a specific degree?
With the exception of technical fields such as nursing, accounting, automotive technology, engineering, etc., most jobs are open to candidates who have degrees from a variety of subjects.
