How do I choose a college major if I'm undecided?

Hey everyone! As a junior, I've been thinking a lot about what I want to study in college, but I'm still undecided. How do I choose a major if I don't know what I want to do yet? Is it okay to apply as undecided, or is it better to pick a major before applying? Thanks for any advice!

Hey there! It's completely normal to be unsure about your major at this stage. Many students go through this dilemma, and it's perfectly okay to apply as undecided. In fact, a lot of colleges encourage students to explore their interests during the first year or two before committing to a major. However, it's essential to start narrowing down your interests and passions. Take some time to think about the subjects you enjoy most in school and any extracurricular activities you're passionate about. You can also talk to your teachers, school counselors, or people in your desired field to get a better understanding of the majors that align with your interests. If you have a few possible majors in mind, you can consider applying to colleges that offer strong programs in those areas. Remember, you'll have time to figure it out once you're in college, and you can always change your major if you find that your initial choice isn't the right fit. Good luck!
