The Process of Choosing a Major

By: Lily Mank
Applying to college is a daunting task but choosing a major that will define your career and therefore the rest of your life is another story in itself. Fear not! All students have been there and eventually we figure it out. My advice to you is to explore your options by trying new classes, gaining a variety of work experiences and talking to professionals or career advisors. As a freshman, I majored in animal sciences with the goal of becoming a veterinarian. However, I continued explored different courses by taking a design studies course and a landscape architecture course. I realized these options were a better fit to my interests and I am now a Landscape Architecture and Zoology double major. There is no shame in being an undecided major and taking the time to figure out what you want, in fact, I highly recommend it!
