Choosing a major can be difficult. There are so many to choose from; you want a major that will bring you a profitable career, but you also want something you enjoy.
The first thing you’ll want to consider when choosing a major is what you love to do. Find something you’re truly passionate about and enjoy doing. Many people choose something very practical that they know they can have a career with. This is fine, but many find in the end that they hate their job. You don’t want to dread going in for work every day. Others don’t have a real direction and end up having to get a master’s degree in order to have the education for the career they decide on later. If you can figure out what you want to do that you love, choosing a major is easy.
The next thing you’ll want to do is figure out what education you need to succeed in what you love. Sometimes you might need a master’s degree in your chosen profession and having a complementary bachelor’s degree, rather than a bachelor’s degree in the same field, is preferable. By choosing your path before you begin, you will have a greater focus.
While you’re in college, be sure to find internships that relate to your chosen career as well. They will help you focus on what you really want to do and increase the chances for success. It will look good on your resume when you’re applying for jobs to show that you have real-world experience in that field.
