How to Successfully Choose Your College Degree Trajectory

College in countries like America can be challenging as 17 and 18 year old students are faced with many options of what discipline to dedicate the next 4 years of their academic life. Some students want to major in what their parents told them to while others don't even know where to start. Here are some things to consider when choosing a major:

  • Choose a discipline that you have a natural knack for as you will be spending a lot of time taking those courses. So unless you wanna work too hard for nothing then choose wisely
  • Don't major in something just because it is popular. Do research and figure out what are the career prospects for that major in the future
  • Ask yourself whether you want to major in something that you have never had the time to explore or whether you want to continue to learn more about something that has been deeply rooted in you since childhood
  • Last but not least, don't be surprised if you realize that you don't like a major as much as you thought you did. Learn to follow your instincts and switch major before it costs you too much in terms of GPA and graduation time
