Deciding on a Major in College

Updated on May 25, 2012

Deciding on a major when it comes to College, it something that I have definitely had some experience with. I know there are some people who decided on a major before they actually start college(like me) and there are some who choose a major after they have already started college(this maybe the smarter choice). There are various reasons why we choose the majors that we chose but after my college experience(s) my advice is to choose a major that you are already PASSIONATE about it. I think this makes it all the better. Truth be told some of us choose majors that our parents want us too chose and some choose then because "that is where the money is".

I think any form of education is important, whether its a 4-year school, a 2-year school, a certificate, or a trade school, no matter what you choose its still important. Many times we do not realize that there is a program designed especially for what we already have a passion for. When you go to school for something you already have a passion, it makes the learning experience that much greater. Some people drop out of college because they are under the impression that when they first start college, they will automatically be taking classes heard towards their major BUT that is far from the case. Usually one has to start out taking a general education classes before they can start taking classes geared towards their major.

Now, does that make that person a bad person for dropping out? No not at all that just simply means that they needed a different type of school or environment that would be geared towards what they want to go to school for. When you go to school for something you have a passion for you are simply building on your craft and thats the best part. I am currently working on my masters degree and it has been a long journey but I am FINALLY actually going to school for what I have a passion for. So, when i said that it makes the learning experience that much better, I definitely meaning! It truly helps you build upon and perfect your craft. So I would encourage you all to follow your passion, really think about what you want to do for the rest of your life. You want to be happy with whatever you are doing. Don't take a job just for the money but at the end of the day you are still not happy for satisfied. God want us to live a purposeful and abundant life.

God Bless you all

      Great advice! You're right, any edication is very important these days. Having a degree (whether it's a 2 year or 4 year) helps to keep yourself from being invisible.
