You usually choose a major area of study in your first or second year of college. Examples of a major include biology, teaching, marketing, finance, health care, or human resources. However, if you don’t have a major already picked out, you may want to visit your counselor or adviser—since all of your college majors are listed in a catalog. On the other hand, all colleges provide an adviser that can help you to decide what is the best major for you. First, you have to make an appointment to get advice on what course you would like to take. An adviser will tell you the courses you may need to graduate. However, it is important to make a good choice when it comes to your major. This becomes very important because it is your education and future—the base of your life.
The choice that you make is very important. Although make sure you ask yourself these questions:
- Why do I want to choose a major?
- What will I accomplish from this major?
