How can I decide my major?

Hi, I am a rising sophomore who has a lowly interest in Computer Science, a mild interest in Business, but still does not know where to go or to start. I don't know how I can easily find what interests me, and I have been struggling with this for a long time.

I would definitely start by looking at what your school offers. If they have courses like CompSci/AP CompSci, definitely enroll in them either this year (if you still can) or your junior year to make sure it's something you're interested in. If you already have, and you're still on the fence, maybe take a look at a list of majors offered at a college of your choice and go by process of elimination. Start off by making a list of the ones you absolutely do not want to do, then list the ones you could potentially see yourself doing.

I would also recommend taking a look at extracurriculars/clubs your school offers. An interest in CompSci might lead you to the robotics team, if your school offers one. Academic Decathlon or clubs like Finance or CompSci (should they exist) might also be worth looking into.
