                               Your
                          College Major
  Finding out that you have been accepted to the
college of your choice is certainly an exciting reward
  for all your years of hard work and study in high
school. But getting into a college is only the first step
  - deciding what you are going to do during your
   undergraduate career is something else again.

                           Your
                      College Major
  Some lucky students start college knowing
exactly what they want to major in. But many
 students aren't sure what field of study they
  want to focus on. Or they may know what
  kind of a career they want, but they aren't
  sure which is the best major to reach that
                     goal.

                     How to Decide on
                           Your
                      College Major
     It is important to realize that some
  uncertainty about what to study is very
common among college students. After all,
about one-third to one-half of your courses
will be in your major or related to it, so you
 need to be selective and choose a subject
       that you are truly interested in.

                            Your
                       College Major

 In fact, if you don't have a clear idea of what
you want to do, then knowing what genuinely
  engages your attention is the first thing to
      consider when deciding on a major.

                     How to Decide on
                           Your
                      College Major
Ask yourself which subjects you enjoyed most
 in high school, and which you could hardly
   wait to be done with. You don't want to
 waste your time getting a degree in a major
  that will prepare you for a career that you
   won't enjoy, even if the money is good.

                           Your
                      College Major
   Be honest with yourself here, so that you
 don't graduate with a degree that you barely
 use before you decide that you don't like the
 work you're doing, and then have to go back
to school and get retrained for the career that
               you really want.
