Deciding on a college major, need advice?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior and starting to feel the pressure of choosing a major for college applications. How did y'all go about picking the right major? Were there any resources or experiences that really helped you decide? Any advice would be super appreciated!

It's definitely a common concern to feel uncertain about choosing a college major, but remember that many students enter college undeclared and that's completely okay. I suggest reflecting on subjects and activities that you're passionate about and excel in. Also, consider career exploration resources such as informational interviews with professionals in various fields, job shadowing, or internships, which can provide valuable real-world insight. Look into the course offerings at colleges you're interested in, as well as potential career paths that stem from those majors. Remember, your major doesn't necessarily determine your career, and many people pursue professions unrelated to their major. Use this time to explore and keep an open mind!
