Picking a major is a really hard decision. And there aren’t any fool-proof ways to do it, either.
The majority of students change their major at least once, and I completely understand why! You are a totally different person when you first step onto that university campus than when you graduate four years later. That being said, I do think that most people who change majors do so not because they have necessarily changed fundamentally as a person but because they chose a major without asking themselves some important questions to make sure it was the right choice first.
I know that everyone is starting school already, but the reason I’m writing this now is that I know that many of you guys will start questioning whether or not you chose the right major in about two months. So, to save you that trouble and stress right before your first exam season, I compiled a list of questions that I asked myself to help me choose my own major and that I think will help you make sure that you are picking a major that is complimentary to who you are as a person and what you want your life to look like 20 years from now!
