How to Choose a College Major

Even as you get to college, you might still be unsure about what college major to pursue. After all, how do you choose what career to pursue when you don’t even know if you’ll enjoy your college courses? Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. Here are some tips to help you select the right college major for you.

Job Shadowing

If you have an inkling of what type of career you’re after, job shadow someone in that field in order to see what a day on the job is like. This way, you can select a major that leads to a job you can envision yourself enjoying.

Take An Aptitude Test

One simple way to decide what major to pursue is by taking an aptitude test. This will at least tell you where your talents and personality lie so that you can narrow down your options.

Meet With Faculty Members

Consult with lecturers on the subjects that interest you in order to get more of an understanding of that field, particularly once you leave school. Also, talk to some student advisors to get a better understanding of the courses available to you and what they entail so you can exercise all your options.
