SELECTING A MAJOR 


One of the most frequently asked questions of college students is, "What's your major?" Fellow students may ask out of sincere curiosity. Some may use it as a conversation starter. Adults may ask to see if you're truly testing yourself. Choosing a major is a necessary step for any student pursuing a Bachelor's degree. But it doesn't have to be a life sentence. Colleges want you to focus your studies on a particular subject area only after you've completed the core courses during your first two years. Choosing a particular field of study begins a long process that will eventually lead to your undergraduate degree,

Colleges ask prospective students to specify their "intended" major. The typical high school student has no idea what he or she plans to study. Some students may write "Liberal Studies" which is a fancy way of saying, "I don't know but I will make that decision when I get to college." And that is a perfectly acceptable answer. Some colleges actually allow students to declare an 'undecided' major. Others have developed special programs to introduce undecided students to a variety of majors. Knowing what you don't want to do is as important as knowing what you do want.

Whether you plan to be a doctor, lawyer or Indian chief, the beauty of an education is the unlimited opportunities available to you upon graduation.
