How do I choose a college major?

Hello everyone! I'm a junior in high school and I'm trying to figure out what I want to major in when I go to college. I have a few interests, but I'm not sure how to narrow it down. How did you choose your major, and do you have any advice for me? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! I've been through this process with my own child, so I understand how confusing it might be to choose a major. First, consider your interests and strengths. Make a list of subjects you genuinely enjoy and those that you excel in. From there, research potential majors related to those subjects and consider any future career paths you might be interested in. It's also a good idea to take elective courses in high school that align with your interests to get a feel for what you might like to study in college. Don't be afraid to explore and keep an open mind. Remember, many students change their major during college, so it's not set in stone. Additionally, try talking to people who are in the fields you're considering, as well as your school counselor or teachers for advice. They can provide valuable insights and share their experiences with you. Good luck with your decision-making process!
