Choosing a Major Helps Determine Possible Career Paths
Narrowing down a major from the dozens of available options is overwhelming for students who either find joy in a wide range of subjects, or have not yet found any of the choices appealing. It's best to begin exploring your options, even if you aren't sure yet which university you'll attend or what classes you're taking your first semester. Jumping into a major without researching it will only temporarily relieve the pressure you're feeling from your university, parents or peers to make a decision. Doing so might mean more pressure later on in your college career, when you have to shift into reverse and reevaluate which major will truly make you happy. Get the researching and soul-searching out of the way before nailing down a subject.
