Choosing a College Major this Fall
Are you having a problem choosing a college major?
Are already in college and have not selected a college major or minor as yet? Before you start thinking that you are alone, you should know that almost 80% of college students are unsure of a major when they enter college and almost 50% of college students will change their major at least once before graduating.
Based on my experience working with college students, it is a good idea to have a college major identified by the sophomore year. As you ponder your major choices, there are four key college campus resources that all ne college students should connect with as soon as they arrive on campus.
-A faculty or chairperson of a college program
-An assigned academic advisor
-The career center to learn more about career assessments
-Connect with the First Year Experience program if your campus has one in place
