How to choose the right college major?

Hi all! I'm a junior, and I'm starting to think about what I want to major in. There are so many options, and I'm not sure how to narrow it down. What factors should I consider when choosing a major? Any advice or personal experiences would be appreciated!

Hey there! It's great that you're starting to think about your college major early on. My child went through a similar process not too long ago. One important factor to consider is what subjects you truly enjoy, and what you could see yourself studying for a few years without losing interest. It's also helpful to think about your long-term career goals and how a specific major might help you get there. You could try talking to people who work in fields you're interested in to see what they studied and gain insight into their experiences. Additionally, it's a good idea to explore the majors offered by colleges you're considering, as not all schools may have the same options. Just remember, it's okay to change your mind later - many students do! Good luck with your decision-making process!
