Hello! It's great that you're starting to think about potential college majors. It's important to consider a few factors when making this decision. First, think about your interests and passions. What subjects do you enjoy learning about? What activities or hobbies do you like to participate in? These can give you clues about what majors might align with your interests. Second, consider your career goals. What type of job would you like to have after college? Some majors can lead to specific careers, while others are more flexible. It's also helpful to research job market trends and salary expectations for different fields. Third, consider your strengths and weaknesses. Are there certain subjects that you excel in or struggle with? This can help narrow down your options. Finally, don't be afraid to explore and change your mind. Many students switch majors during college as they discover new interests and passions. Good luck in your search!
