Choosing a Major

The Truth About Majors

Despite all the anxiety surrounding majors, the reality is that you'll probably take only a quarter to a third of your college courses in your field of study.

Starting college without having your major picked out isn't a bad thing. It's a chance to experiment. If something in the course catalog catches your interest, try it out. Who knows, that course in entomology could end up being the most fascinating class you've ever taken. It could even lead you to a major.

Contact Career Development to talk with a counselor about your major. They will likely have you do a career inventory or assessment, explore your interests, and develop a list of tangible steps to help you decide which majors make sense for you.
