Need help finding a major that suits me

I'm a junior and starting to think about college majors. Problem is, I have no clue what I want to study! How did you guys figure out your majors? Are there any resources I can use to help me find a major that aligns with my interests and future goals?

Hi! Don't worry, it's completely normal to be unsure about your major when you're still in high school. I was in a similar position when I started my college journey. Finding the right major is a process, but there are several strategies and resources you can use to help make a decision.

First, reflect on your personal interests, strengths, and the type of work you enjoy. Are you more inclined towards science and math or humanities and arts? Make a list of subjects you've enjoyed the most in school. Another approach is to identify potential career paths you're interested in and research the majors that are commonly associated with them.

There are also online tools that can help you assess your interests, skills, and values, such as CollegeVine's or US News' major quizzes, which gives you personalized recommendations. Lastly, don't hesitate to reach out to your school counselor or family members for guidance and insight. Remember, many students enter college undecided and find their passions along the way, so take your time to explore! Good luck!
