What should I know before I choose a major?
You should know something about yourself. What are your skills, values, and interests? The process of choosing a major or career field begins with you, not with a list of job titles. You will do best at what you enjoy. Once you have clarified your own skills and talents, you can begin to research career fields that will fit your strengths and interests. As you begin to understand your career interests, choosing a major is much easier. Try to choose a major which will allow your individual skills and talents to flourish and, at the same time, seek experiences outside the classroom to supplement what you are learning and to prepare yourself for the world of work.
